Crazy Patchwork Embroidered Needle Book - from green Hand-dyed fabrics

Crazy Patchwork Embroidered Needle Book - from green Hand-dyed fabrics
Love this


A beautiful crazy patchwork needle book stitched from hand-dyed fabrics and laces, from vintage linens, combined with hand-dyed threads.

A variety of hand-dyed linen, cotton and lace, from recycled vintage linens, have been hand-dyed to give several coordinating shades of green. These materials have been used to create a crazy patchwork cover for this needlebook. In the tradition of crazy patchwork, the design has been heavily embellished by hand embroidery, both as 'filling stitches' for entire patches and as edge stitches. Shades of pink and green threads have been chosen. The cover is finished by an edging of blanket stitch in green thread.

The needle book is lined in a floral print cotton fabric. The cover is stiffened by a layer of interfacing. Three pieces of vintage soft flannelette are folded and securely stitched in place, to provide six 'pages' for your needles and pins. The needlecase closes by a button hole stitch, cotton loop over a green, vintage button.
