I made a sewing case for Elizabeth (Echoes of Elizabeth Sewing Case). I made a sewing case for Catherine.

So how could I not make one for Eleanor.


So here, worked in Eleanor's colors is Eleanor's Sewing Case.


At the last E-Week, I sold Eleanor's scissors and fob, in February Eleanor's tiny coin purse. What I didn't say was that I made them all to go with Eleanor's Sewing Case.


Eleanor's Sewing Case is worked on three pieces of soft ivory (color) congress cloth in Soie d'Alger silk (7 colors), Planet Earth silk (1 color),pearl cotton (2 colors) Kreinik braid, Gilt Smooth Passing Thread, Accentuate, 100/3 silk and Impressions (3 colors). In addition are four little baggies of assorted beads and pearls.


The sewing case is approximately 3 3/4" wide by 5 1/2" tall when closed, about 7 1/2" wide when open.


The instructions for Eleanor's Sewing Case are 51 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of the pieces of my sewing case. In addition there are two Oversize Graphs. The instructions include how to finish the sewing case (it is easy).
