I love to think of new accessories for stitchers as I am as much as stitching addict as you are! I cannot face my lovely gold plated needles stuck in to a bit of old cardboard or old felt - I need a pretty case or something similar.
I think a needlebook is self explanatory but I have had fun creating other needle places so I have grouped them in this section.
Needle Tidies were inspired by old Shaker pincushion and are made as a flat square with a folded hem and have a little pad inside.
Needle Safes started out as little self lined band samplers and are stitched on 28-count linen band so there are no folded hems.
Needlefolds were also originally band samplers that got converted!
This needle tidy is loosely based on a Quaker pincushion and is made up in two main sections. The outer cover is worked as a square and when folded it contains a small covered cushion pad
This pretty counted project is worked on linen band and so requires very little making up. The perfect place to keep your gold-plated needles
Counted cross stitch with four-sided stitch bands.
A handmade, folded pocket worked on pure unbleached linen. The design is worked partly in stranded cottons and in Stef Francis space dyed silk.
It is embellished with a few mixed glass seed beads.
A very pretty needlebook in cross stitch and pulled thread stitches. No threads are removed when working this project!
Worked in cross stitch and other counted stitches this traditional design has been folded to create a very attractive needlesafe. The design includes a small amount of Hardanger embroidery as well as a few additional counted stitches.
This exquisite little needlefold is created from a band sampler worked in counted cross stitch, Hardanger embroidery and a few additional counted stitches. We have made a little covered magnet which is attached to the needlefold with narrow linen band. If you click on the picture to the left you will see more pictures of the actual stitching.
This pretty stitcher's collection includes the folded and lined hussif, a scissor chatelaine, scissor keeper and basket trim. The boxed kit includes all the components to make this lovely set of accessories.
Now available as a complete kit, this project is included on my Hardanger for the Horrified ebook. The stitching is worked on this lovely linen band and then folded to create a folded pocket
This cleverly constructed stitcher’s treasure is made up of four stitched pockets worked on unbleached linen band. The stitches include cross stitch, backstitch, queen stitch, French knots, four sided stitch, hemstitch & bullion bars. The complete project is worked by hand and is very simple to put together!
The hand crafted wooden bobbin and the stitcher’s tools are not included but may be bought separately.
This pack includes decorated edge linen band, narrow linen band, pre-sorted stranded cottons, 2 gold plated needles, hand dyed pure wool felt, shell buttons and fully illustrated instructions
This exquisite little etui is worked on pure linen band in two widths - with vintage seed beads added for effect.

The pack includes the lovely little gold plated chatelaine scissors and the tiny scissor charm.
Originally designed as a linen class here at Pinks Barn, the Petite Fleur Trio is now available as a complete kit.
The Petite Fleur Purse is worked in stranded cottons,seed beads and has a folded hem with ribbon tie. The tie is weighted with a pin keeper including a strong magnet. The Beaded Watbo is worked on linen and is completed with a ribbon and covered brass rings.
Inspired by my fifth visit to Giverney, France and to Claude Monet's garden, this project was first completed by many of our guests on our Northern France Tour in April 2013.
The project includes a project purse including the bridge over a Hardanger lily pond with a gold plated charm, a needle book and a Watbo scissor keeper. As a result of the response to the scissors I used on my worked example, I have included them in the pack!
This very pretty piece of stitching is not suitable fr the novice because although it is a small design, it includes many counted stitches. Inside there is a tiny silver plated scissor charm
This special little needlecase is constructed from one piece of unbleached linen with a lining of cream linen. It is worked like a band sampler then folded.
This very useful folded case has been beautifully made for us in Hungary using Zweigart linen 14- count aida and are cleverly lined in real soft black suede. Ideal slip case to keep your phone safe.
Each pack includes an alphabet chart but no threads.
This pretty set of stitcher's accessories is made in three sections: a band sampler, a pin keep and a scissor chatelaine. The band sampler is completed with a folded hem and then lined to make a needlefold or scissor case.
