My 'Needlework Small' Exchange to Veronica
This- as a reminder, is the set by Ellen Chester 'With My Needle' from the JCS Christmas ornie magazines over a few different years. I did everything pretty much exactly the same for the stitching and finishing as I had done for the pocket. The only addditon was the small silk ribbon bows which have not come out quite the right shade on my pictures but which do tone in very well IRL :)) The striped fabric you can just see on these pictures is what I used for the lining.
For the back of the scissor pocket I stitched the same as the Needleworkers pocket for the personalisation, I did also personalise the back of the fob in each corner... Sorry I forgot to turn that around for its picture! The fob was a little fiddley but ever so cute thing to do, as it is actually quite tiny to get a neat finish but I managed well. It is made as per the finishing instructions in the JCS magazine with the weight inside 2 pieces of batting. I included that as an extra to go with the scissor pocket along with the fabric, linen and threads etc I used, so Veronica can complete the set for herself. :)
Veronica has said she is 'thrilled' to have received them and was so excited she could hardly stand it which made me laugh. If you would like to re-visit her blog go here.
