Blue & White Crewel Pocket Materials Kit
This product consists of everything you need to work and construct the embroidered blue and white pocket: indigo-dyed worsted wool crewel yarn, linen fabric marked with design, linen backing fabric, binding material and a suitable needle. You will need a small amount of modern sewing thread which is not included.
Worked entirely in shades of blue and white, it is a delightful example of classic design and workmanship. Typical of period work, in which only a few stitches are used, this project provides the modern needlewoman an opportunity to create a beautiful piece of embroidery from the past.
This product compliments the Blue and White Crewelwork Pocket Instructions, a pdf download also available in our store. Some of the period techniques may be unfamiliar to you, but step-by-step instructions and stitch diagrams will guide you through the process of creating your own heirloom.
