Needlework folder

The final item in Sophie's sewing set is a needle work folder.
This is the front. The fabric is a part of the panel in the kit I bought from Fearies in my Garden.
The text is embroidered in stem stitch. In the kit was a paper with a complete alphabet in beautiful curling script.

The inside.

The inner left side:  two little needle packet pockets and a large pocket devided in two parts. 
They are embellished with cretan, feather and blanket stitch.

The inner right side: a pin holder,  a heart shaped scissor case, a needle case and a narrow slot.

In the inside of the pin holder and needle case is a piece of cream felt.

The cretan stitch hides the sewing line perfectly.

So does the feather stitch.

The scissor holder closes with a loop around a very pretty button. 

The backside.

Sophie's Sewing Set completed.
All items are posing on our couch. 
Never thought our couch would form such a perfect background.

  4. Simply lovely and practical is the best project. Your couch is very color coordinated for this sewing set. I adore how you have covered machine stitching with your beautiful decorative hand stitching. Beautiful job dear...

  5. Congratulations on completing a most charming, and useful, sewing set.
    The embroidery stitches have elegantly covered the machine stitching.
