Christmas Sewing Tins and Candy Cane Scissors

 This is a really pretty festive chart pack from Keepsake Stitches.  It contains a collection of three designs for:
  • a tin lid (specifically for the candy cane scissors featured on the front of the chart pack - not included) stitch count 56W x 26H
  • a scissor fob, stitch count 36 x 36
  • a pin/needle cushion tin lid, with inside pin cushion stitch count 31W x 17H
The tin designs are designed to fit on small and large Altoid tins, these are obviously a US item.  There are a few brands of UK peppermints that come in tins that would be a suitable alternative if you wanted to mount the designs on to tin lids.  The recommended fabric for these is a 36 count linen, if you want to stitch these designs and make them up as shown you will need a 36 count linen or evenweave.  As there are speciality stitches used aida is not ideal.

The chart uses DMC floss along with some Gentle Art Sampler threads (DMC equivelents given).  Additionally some Mill Hill beads are used.  (nbote none of these stitching suppiles are included with the chart pack).  The chart also includes details on where the very cute candy cane scissors are available from.

Detailed instructions are included on the speciality stitches that are used in this design along with intructions (and templates for making up the tin lids).  This ia very niely put together chart pack.

If you require a hand dyed fabric to stitch these designs on please contact us at the same time that you place the order and we will be happy to custom cut a piece for the design and give 10% off the fabric price.  The sized piece of fabric will depend on how much of the set you wish to stitch as extra fabric will be needed if you wish to stitch the inside lid personalisation as well.
