Something different ~ a beautiufl French antique-style sewing box to store your collection of vintage sewing items. Designed as a display item, to grace your side-board or china cabinet, this beautiful needlework container can also be used as a practical storage box. Fill it with antique sewing accessories, a chatelaine, or any special bits and pieces in your colleciton, and you have a decorator item that appeals not only to the needle-worker, but also to those with a taste for antiques. Alternatively, it would make a beautiful jewellery box for a lady who collects either antique jewellery, or even graceful contemporary pieces.
The box is made using foam board (available from craft shops, art supplies, and some office supply shops). The pattern gives detailed cutting instructions, and directions for making the box, as well as pattern and instructions for the embroidery.
The kit includes the pattern and the fabric to make this lovely project. Foam board, notions, and threads and embellishments are not included in the basic kit.
If you wish, you can add the threads and embellishments, at an additional cost of $39. This pack includes all the threads, plus the lace, ribbon, antique hinges, and box catch. Please write in the Comments Column if you would like us to add the Threads and Embellishments to your order. We also have on offer our brand new range of Vintage Haberdashery in the form of a thread holder and set of six thread holders. Go to the left hand menu and click on "What's New" if you wish to order these as they are not included in the kit or pattern for the box.
