Sewing Necessaires are done and here are a few photos

What a busy two weeks it has been. Every time I started sewing I had to stop for other things. I finally managed to get 80 sewing necessaires done. I have all the buttons, trims, charms, needle pages and the hand made felted wool button bags done too. I am now doing the finishing touches. Sewing on the mother of pearl heart as the pocket divider(or a hand made charm on some) and I am sewing on mother of pearl rings to run the ribbon through on the back side to dress them up. Lots of work!!

I like limited editions as you well know. I ran out of the Williamsburg Sampler fabric after selling dozens of these last year. I also had some of the Moda fabric with the sampler and alphabet that was similar. It is also discontinued now. Why do they do that??
Any ways....I took the medium blue background and dyed it light brown.  I also dyed seam ribbon for the tie and a beautiful skein of floss to add to it. I like an antique look. I also have some of the other colors in the fabric and I will leave then as they are and make some necessaires this week.




The bottom photo shows the other shades of fabric that I will use.

I have so many fabric combinations......lots of Christmas fabrics, antique tan floral is one of my favorites.
These make such nice gifts. I have 10 set aside that are already sold and a couple for give-aways (and I will have one soon). I have started listing these on ebay today with the tan fabric and I will list more soon. They are $25.95 on ebay.

Thanks for stopping by. I will show you more pictures as I get time.
