Finished Needle book Size – 5 ¹⁄”2 square, Finished Needlework Roll – 10″ x 2 ¹⁄”2 closed ⁄ 10″ x 16 ¹⁄”2 open
The “Petite Blooms ~ Sewing Set” pattern includes iron on transfers for all embroidered panels, a full sized pattern sheet and an abundance of photographic and illustrated instruction.
Combine patchwork, applique, embroidery and dimensional fabric flowers to create this pretty yet practical sewing set. Make a needlework roll for storing your finished needlework blocks or works in progress, a needlebook with matching scissor fob… or both. The embroidery panels are embellished with flowers cut from easily made “double-sided fabric”. They are attached to the feature panels with central embroidery, leaving the edges free to sit up a little from the background, adding a dimensional quality to the design. Ecru threaded backstitch is sewn around the outside of each embroidery panel, giving the effect of a subtle lace edge. The “Petite Blooms” needlebook features a patchwork cover with an embroidered panel. The panel design is embellished with dimensional flowers. Inside, you’ll discover felted wool needle keeps, a “flap pocket” and
three open pockets. The needlebook is securely closed with a braided tie that winds around a button on the back. A matching scissor fob completes this sweet sewing set. Lay your needlework blocks inside the “Petite Blooms” needlework roll, roll up and tie with a bow for safekeeping. Each time you open the roll an embroidered verse with patchwork borders is revealed. The
outside of the needlework roll combines rows of simple patchwork and a floral feature panel with embroidery and dimensional flowers.
