It's about time I showed you what I have been stitching and working on these past few weeks, it's been a fun design to create - so fun I have decided to include three design variations in the one pattern....how ironic that when I was making these lovelies I misplaced my favorite needle.
Elfin Delight is a needle and scissor keep project, a little flip back holder that can sit beside you when you are stitching and then tuck the sharp bits safely away and throw in your sewing bag.
They sure look sweet sitting together in a little group. The fabric? it's from my next collection Folk Tale, arriving in stores at the end of next month.
These two pictures are actually images of the back of the needle & scissor keeper, I couldn't resist taking a photo of them, with the exception of the design above in the top left corner - this is one of the pattern options, simply no embroidery with a two piece front flap. Perfect and quick to put together for sewing gifts and crafty swaps with friends.
Hmmm....I must name that hedgehog below one day, simply too cute not to have a name.
Moving onto the front here is little Elfin, she is delicate, tiny, free spirited and loves dancing with the butterflies.
I love her so.
When you open Elfin Delight it's designed to fold back on it's self and can be secured at the back with a covered button so the keeper sits up and can sit beside you when stitching.
What's the covered button on the inside for? Hook your scissor handle over the button so everything you need is in one place, always.
Here are the pattern variations available -
Option A: Embroidered on the front and inside flap
Option B: Single embroidery on the front flap
Option C: No embroidery with a two piece front flap
I just loved taking photos of all four Elfin Delights open with the little arched needle keeper just begging to be filled with my favorite needles.....
I am just putting the finishing touches on the pattern now, proofing and pattern testing is complete and I can't wait to see these little gems popping up all over the place. For those stores interested in placing a wholesale order please send me a direct email / cinderberry at ozemail dot com dot au / you will be among the first to receive the Elfin Delight stock.
Release date is 22nd January (yes - tomorrow) so keep an eye on the blog for the pattern cover and special promotion....it's a happy, happy day x
