Shop Announcement:

Since I am trying to live, and stitch, according to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra, there is now little to distinguish this shop from my other, Lynwoodcrafts, Folksy shop. As a consequence, all new items will be listed at Lynwoodcrafts and items listed at LynwoodcraftsRecycled will gradually be moved over to Lynwoodcrafats. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found 'Lynwoodcrafts' at Folksy.

Description

A portion of pretty, cross stitch, vintage hand embroidery, reclaimed from a vintage tablecloth, was used for the cover of this needlebook. I felt the cover would benefit from some extra detailing so I added two little butterflies, and a border under the flowers, in white thread. The cover is finished by an edging of blanket stitch in pink cotton thread.

The needle book is lined in a pink and white vintage 1970s fabric. Two pieces of vintage soft flannelette are folded and securely stitched in place, to provide four 'pages' for your needles and pins. The needle case closes by a button hole stitch loop over a white button.

Inspiration

A portion of pretty cross stitch embroidery from a vintage tablecloth suggested a needlebook cover. I wanted to add a little more detail so stitched in white thread so that the original embroidery was differentiated from mine. I like the result!
