The Sewing Necessaire Present and giveaway! Enter Now!
I have been very busy once again. I have wanted to do a special Sewing Necessaire....a layered present! Three layers of goodies and wrapped with a ribbon bow. The best part? It is already MADE for you....by me. Yes, everything is done. The fabrics were backed with fusible fleece to give it a soft and padded sturdy base. Completely sewn including the floss rings, wool needle pages and my own little hand dyed wool button bag! I found the cutest safety pin with a rounded end...look so cute. Then I added a couple pieces of hand dyed wool for you and pinned them together with a huge antique bronze flower safety pin. Ric rac, buttons, brass sewing charms and some lace! 4" tall, 4" square. Each layer is 4" x 13". Tied with hand dyed cotton twill ribbon.
I looked at kits on the internet....some higher than $50 for a single item and then you have to put it together. This 3 layer present is priced at $49 until Christmas and then may go up $10. I will also be selling the individual layers as single Sewing Necessaires and those will be completed too. Those will be $24 each. The three layered present is a very good buy. I used mostly Moda fabrics, hand dyed wool, and high quality wool felt. My own hand dyed trims and buttons. Mother of pearl floss rings. 20 yards of floss with each set.
I have these two styles completed, several of each (I am working on an assembly line of 100 of these....that's 300 layers!)
I am also working on blue and tan prints, black and tan, beige/brown, etc. I will show more as I have them completed. Every time I get busy on these I have to stop and put together ebay orders.
I thought these would make very nice Christmas presents for a stitching friend...or to pamper yourself with some goodies.
So lets get to the give-away!! I thought I would start the quickly approaching holiday season with a little gift giving. So lets give a couple SINGLE layers away first. I will draw two names. Then I thought I would give away one of the layered presents.
I want to spread the word so a lot of people get a chance to win.
Rules: You must be a follower and you must post a comment here. Post on your blog and get 20 more entries, yes 20. You should see me pulling my hair out on the day of the drawings!
