Description

A beautiful and unusual trinket box fashioned from scraps from an embroidered vintage cloth, bright golden yellow felt, vintage buttons and a cardboard tube.

Three fragments of embroidered linen have been combined to cover the 'walls' of this pot - embellished with vintage lace, the embroidery repaired and enhanced with some additional orange 'spots'. The lid outer was a more heavily embroidered fragment needing only a little extra embroidery. The lid and base have been cut from card taken from recycled greetings cards and the body of the box is a cardboard tube taken from the centre of a crochet thread ball. The box is entirely lined in a wool blend, bright yellow felt (bought as recycled offcuts from commercial production) and this is also used for the outer base.

Bright orange crochet cotton has been used to hand-stitch the box and to crochet the picot trim which decorates the lid edge. Cords crocheted from this cotton provide stays for the lid. The box closes by winding a crocheted cord (trimmed with an orange, ceramic bead) round two vintage buttons.

Overall Height - 6 cm approx
Outer diameter - 9 cm approx
Inner Diameter - 7.5 cm approx

Please note: this item contains small parts and is not suitable for children under 36 months.

Inspiration

A little stack of cardboard tubes (centres from cotton threads and adhesive tapes), and my stash of vintage linens, laces and buttons have combined in this design.
