All closed up. I made a tassel for the top out of my crocheting thread.
I crocheted a 26 inch length chain for the cording. But I did double the string.
The center. Thimble holder and I put 4 layers of batting on the top to make a small pincushion.
I probably should have put more layers but I was afraid of it being too high.
The pocket I made was for my little pair of scissors
I wish I remembered where I bought these. They fold up
Just pull the cord and it closes up.
Put the lid on and it is secure.
Now to find a place on my shelf in my sewing room.
I must say it wasn't bad doing it.
I didn't pull out my hair nor did I glue my fingers together. But I did have the warm wash cloth close by and paper towels. I had to wipe my hands off alot. But I am messy. And I did use a half of bottle of Aleene's clear tacky glue.
Be careful don't put alot of glue on. Alittle goes a long way. I would also cut the pieces alittle bigger than what they say. it did take awhile to complete but I was being careful and waiting for things to dry properly.
Would I make another one? Probably, but not tomorrow. (wink)
I found a web site that still sells this pattern and others.
Hmmmm I like the Victorian .
