Knick Knacks and Notions

Welcome 🙂

I think you’ll all agree that blogs (and Pinterest) are great places to find ideas and inspiration and this was the case when I came across this post of Lin’s from St Victor’s Quilts.

I wasn’t planning on making any sewing knick-knacks but I saw Lin’s beautiful set and it made me think how nice it would be to have a completely matching set to use for my portable projects. So I pulled some fabric from my stash and started sewing 🙂

Now I haven’t copied what Lin made, but I have stolen her idea!

From this…


into these…

Yet another needle case and yet another pop up thread catcher and yet another pincushion to complete the set!

I’ve got just about enough fabric to make a bag/basket/box/container to put them and a few other sewing necessities in – anyone got any nice ideas for one?

Until next time,

  1. I love all these little sewing knick-knacks you’ve made! If you need more ideas how about a little pouch/sheath for embroidery scissors and/or a scissor fob. I have a little tutorial for a hexagon scissor fob on my blog and I can send you the link if you are interested!

    That’s a beautiful sewing set! I’d like to make one of those thread catchers some day. I would just google Easter basket patterns. You’d probably find some nice ideas to hold these items and still have extra space.

  3. A lovely collection Chris – yes a scissor keep would be a good addition and what about a thimble holder? Ideas are not stolen – they are shared and I am glad my post sparked the idea for you. xx
