Hello and welcome to my Folksy shop! I've been making for others since 2013 and if you'd like to see what my customers have said about my work since then (before I opened up here on Folksy), you can read more than 1,000 reviews on my web site: http://www.thecrimsonrabbit.co.uk/ (click 'Reviews' on the bar at the top of the page).
In addition to the UK, I'm happy to ship most items to Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia - just message me for a shipping quotation.
Many of the pieces I make are made to order and the shipping time is a 'worse case scenario' estimate - I will often make and send items quicker than indicated, although things do sometimes slow down at busy times. If you want something urgently, just message me and I'll confirm if I can meet your deadline. Most items over £15 are posted via the 'signed for' Royal Mail service automatically, but if you'd like to make sure you have this on your order, just message me.
I'm more active on Instagram than anywhere else: https://www.instagram.com/the_crimson_rabbit/ but you can always find me online elsewhere: my blog is here: www.thecrimsonrabbit.co.uk, my facebook page here: www.facebook.com/thecrimsonrabbitpage and my Pinterest addiction is evidenced here: http://www.pinterest.com/crimsonrabbit/

This sewing case is machine and hand stitched using a Liberty Lawn print called 'Mitsi' - a delicate floral in silver, greys and pinks. The lining is Essex Linen in a sugary pink shade, with irridescent metallic threads, probably best seen in the 3rd photo. The closure is a metal snap, with another metal snap closing on the front internal pocket. There's another larger pocket at the back of the case, which is divided into two - one side designed to fit a pair of small scissors and the other, a slim pincushion. Both pockets are decorated with machine embroidery and the back pocket has a vintage button, to anchor a scissor fob cord. This button may not be the same as the one pictured on the case - my vintage collection changes all the time.
The central felt pages for needles and pins are blended wool felt in a creamy shade. The outer, lining and pockets of the case are interfaced with woven cotton to add strength and give structure, and the outer is also softly padded with fleece.
You can purchase the case with or without sewing tools, which include really good quality mini scissors. The scissors are attached to a matching pincushion with a crocheted perle cotton cord, which acts as a scissor fob to stop your scissors from wandering too far! There are some pretty long dressmaker’s pins, safety pins, three needles, a needle threader and a card wrapped with white, black, red and beige thread.
The case when closed is 4.25 high, by 4.5 inches wide (11cm by 11.5cm).
Every organised woman has the wherewithall within her handbag to sew on a button or make a quick running repair in an emergency while travelling. Not every woman keeps this wherewithall in a pretty sewing case!
I've been making sewing cases for a while now and this one is my very latest design, which offers a good amount of storage space in a very small area. I've done away with the scissor keep pocket at the back of my usual case design and replaced it with a large divided pocket, which better allows for use of your own scissors, if you don't want to buy the case with the ones I offer.
