This is my first creation for 2011, finally! It has been kind of hard to get back into the swing of things since the Holidays. I am very excited about this new offering, I made one for myself already. Unfortunately there will only be two of these made, mine and yours. It is a book that I purchased at Michaels Arts and Crafts. It is a wood book covered with old gray canvas that was torn and ripped up. It is lined with a dark purple velvet and has a hidden magnetic closure. I was first using the book as it was for storing and hiding my threads, needles and such. I could just close it up and it would look like a book on my table. I got the idea to stitch up a sewing themed sampler for the cover of the book. I cross stitched my design on fiddlers cloth and then coffee dyed it, pressed and turned it under and hand stitched a hem. I nailed the fabric to the book with tiny rusted nails. On the binding of the book I have stamped a wise old owl and a hanging skelton key for additional whimsy. I am included some old sewing goodies, a spool of thread, an old spindle, a package of hooks and cute little pair of gold trimmed scissors. The book measures 10" long x 6 1/2" wide and 2" deep. A wonderful creation to hold your sewing needs and makes a nice primitive decoration. Signed, dated and copyright 2011.
