Notions

Yesterday I finished this set for my daughter. She’s moving out next week and needed her own sewing-box. She asked me to make a biscornu, a needlebook and a scissor-fob. She did not want a biscornu with embroidery, so I used different fabrics for it. The needlebook is made in log cabin on my mother's old sewing machine, it only has a straight stitch! I used aida for the cross stitch scissorfob. I put them in her sewingbox with some needles, pins, threads in different colours and a tape-measure so she’s ready to sew on a button!

  1. Such cheerful, bright colors! And any time she has to use one of them, it will remind her of home. :^)

  3. Leuk Annet, dat je zoiets voor je dochter maakt! Een biscornu maken staat ook nog steeds op mijn lijstje ;)
