It wasn’t that big of a deal, really. Still, I felt a twinge of sadness whenever I thought about it because it’s something I really liked a lot.
I made the small zippered pouch, all by hand—every last stitch. I wouldn’t call it a work of art, although I was quite proud of the clever piecing and homespun appearance.
I filled the little pouch with my most prized hand sewing supplies:
- Tiny gold scissors in the shape of a stork that were so sharp they cut perfectly all the way to the end of the beak.
- The only thimble I’ve ever found that fit perfectly.
- A small magnetic needle holder filled with the finest German stainless steel sharps in a variety of sizes.
- A tiny container of appliqué pins
- And two spools of thread just the right size and shape to fill the remaining space in the sewing kit.
