Welcome to all readers of Just Cross Stitch! Check this page for the full set of pictures and instructions for finishing this piece as well as the free chart. The piece also compliments my French Monogram set as an additional accessory. A finishing kit is available for the slipper and includes die cut cardboards and batts to help make the finishing a breeze!
Die cut finishing kits are now available for these pieces as shown above. As the size of the die cuts vary depending on the linen you use, be sure to order the correct size.
All finishing kits come with the die cut cardboards, die cut skirtex, and die cut batt.
If you have always wanted an embroidered casket but are not sure of taking on such an enormous project, this kit was designed to allow people to make a sweet little trinket box, modeled off smaller boxes of the 17th century. The box can fit a number of small needlework accessories like scissors and needles. This kit has everything needed to work a 3" deep x 5" long x 3" high trinket box in tent stitch over one on a 24-count linen. The kit includes the wood trinket box, handmade archival covering papers, gilded edging paper, pink silk lining, brass escutcheon, gilt thread woven tape for the edges, linen, 32 tubes of Soie Paris and 6 tubes of a striped gimp thread. Detailed Instructions for full assembly of the box as well as glue and a brush are included as well as links to a video of the paper covering assembly. Gold acrylic paint for wood feet is not included in the kit, but is available at your local craft stores.
This project was inspired by the pincushion in the Martha Edlin casket using a different pattern but a similar color scheme. A small piece, 2" x 2.5", it is worked on 24-count Montrose Linen with Soie Paris threads. A perfect summer project as it requires very little counting and is large scale, it can be done on the beach!
Since the threads are from the Blue and Red Soie Paris collections in the Cabinet of Curiosities Kit, the shop offers both kits with and without the embroidery silks, for those who have them in their stash.
I am now just able to sell the silk velvet backs. Those who have Montrose Linen for their casket or a piece of linen at a close count, the velvet will make a lovely backing!
An elegant set of needlework necessities that are carried in their own silk basket, just in time for Easter! The needlework is done in cross stitch over one on 36ct linen and complimented by Marsha Brown Smith's inventive finishing.
The kit includes all the finishing materials including the wooden bottom and brass feet (except a manila folder and matt board). A bunny shaped thread winder is included as well. A limited number of thread winders are available.
