June Offerings

Strawberry Season has arrived early here on Winding Vine. I think that this is the earliest that I have ever harvested ripe berries from my tiny city plot. I’ve already picked over two pounds and even made some divine Strawberry Cheesecake Lush! Strawberry Season has also inspired this month’s offerings…
My first offering is “Strawberry Season” Thread Board based on a design by Country Rustic Primitives. This piece is both lovely to display and useful. I added amber mother of pearl rings for holding threads on one side. On one ring I have tied on a sweet tiny little velvet and wool strawberry emery complete with black pin “seeds”. You could easily tie it to a pair of sewing scissors as a fob, if you like.
On the back I included an army green wool heart pocket for embroidery scissors (not included) and a brown ribbon tie to keep them safe and secure. There is also a red and army green wool strawberry needle and pin keep complete with back pin “seeds”. It has a base of thin mat board, so that it is stiff and can be propped up on a shelf or table.
It measures approximately 5.5 inches by 8 inches (not including the rings) and is completely handsewn.
~*Sold. Thank you ever so much!*~
Antique Strawberry Patch is a Winding Vine Designs original one of a kind creation. It is a cluster of five strawberries each made of some of my favorite antique fabrics. The strawberries are completely handsewn. It measures approximately 12 inches when hanging with the biggest berries “weighing in” at 2 by 3 inches and the smallest at 1 by 2 inches. They are tied together with vintage seam binding ribbon and an antique mother of pearl buckle.
~*Sold. Thank you ever so much!*~
I’ve made two pinch pockets this month as well. Both are made from vintage fabrics – a gauzy white window valance panel and an embroidered table cloth. These pinch pockets are perfect for a small spool of thread, a small pair of embroidery scissors, and even a few other notions. They each measure approximately 4 inches across and 3 inches tall. Items are stored safely inside until you gently press the two corners together to open.
The pinch pockets are lined with coordinating wool.
As with all of my offerings, they are completely handsewn.
These Vintage Strawberry Pinch Pockets are offered at $25 each.
~*Both are sold. Thank you ever so much!*~

I can send a PayPal invoice or I accept checks and money orders.
