This is a selection of fun fobs and needlecases... designed by two gals in Atlanta who love both beadwork and stitching! Available as complete individual kits, I chose a few designs at Market that were my favorites! We have the stitched models in the shop... so I've tucked them into our color copier, enlarged them, and given you a few more pics than the actual kits do. We're inserting them into all the kits we're selling... things like fringe detail, the insides of the needlecases... stuff that makes a picture worth a thousand pages of instructions!
I understand Peyote stitch, so I could follow the instructions. But if you are unfamiliar with it, you might want a friend close-by who knows Peyote.

The Fern Ridge Ladies have 6 new MINI Needle Case and Scissor Fob Sets and one new Sewing Wallet creation!
We're picturing just three of the sets here... everything else is described and pictured below.

Fully kitted, the 2 x 2 needle cases are done on various linens, and usually with hand-dyed flosses and silks. Pat and Peggy decorate the edges and always add lots of tiny pockets and flaps inside their tiny 2 x 2 cases to make them fussy and fun. Since they are the Queens of Beads, and they love embellishments of every kind... you'll get charms or buttons or ribbons or beads on these cases as well. The 3-inch beaded Scissor Fobs are always OVER THE TOP! HERE is where P & P go crazy with all their cool beads. The basic flat beaded part - the picture part - of the fob is about 1-1/2 inches long and worked in Peyote Stitch, which is a beading technique done in-hand, rather than a loom. Instructions can be daunting in the beginning, but these are totally fun to do! Each fob will take approx 3 to 4 hours start to fringed finish. Work the flat beaded area, add that glorious fringe - about 1-1/2 inches of it - and adorn your favorite scissors or a tote zipper pull! Because of the nylon thread you have used, they are stronger than they look!
Display your finished sets in the Fern Ridge Scissor Box too! Everything comes fully kitted.
  • Strawberry Pie - Bitty berries - some ripe and some - not so much! A pretty set full of pinks and greens, the fob features white blossom beads and red glass berries in the fringe.
  • Simply Stitches - classy black and white... the case features lots of stitch doodles (haven't seen the inside yet!) but that darling fob steals the show again! They found a tiny dice bead, and a fun silver X - a cross stitch! I like all the little cube beads down in the fringed area.
  • A Black Cat - Striking lime green and black... this set is not too involved and would be great for a beginner. The fringe on the fob isn't too frizzy so it's easy to deal with, and the case is just plain cute! Complete kits contain all the thread, fabric and beading 'ingredients' and there is even a wooden cat face thread board included in the case kit.

  • May's Bounty - Features butterflies! Bright summery colors of blues, yellow or bright oranges, the fringe on the fob looks kind of 'out-there!'
  • Flamingo's Folly - Only a teaser pic of this right now! The fob is charming - love those corals and blues in the fringe! The stitched case promises a mother-of-pearl fish button embellishment, but I am sure there is more to this than just that. Details to follow when our shipment arrives!

7 New Needlecase and Beaded Fob Sets
The Fern Ridge ladies have been busy! We have 7 new needlecase and beaded fob sets to show you. The beaded scissor fobs are all flat Peyote beading - which you do in your hands - not on a loom. They look super hard, and really aren't at all. The most challenging part is keeping control of your threads and not tangling them between the 'frizzies' of the fringe! We have a ton of models in the shop for all of Pat and Peggy's things, so next time you're in... we need to give you 'a tour!' All of their kits come complete with all the threads, beads and extra stuff you need! They have actual photographs inside of stitch layouts and clear stitch diagrams and good color pictures to help you with your finishing.

Carrot Patch
The Needle/Sewing Case of this set is done on white linen, and is lined with bright orange. Stitched with silks, it finishes about 2 x w when closed, and comes with that cute bunny-shaped wooden thread board. One of my pics shows the kit ingredients - the beads and charms are just stunning!

The Carrot Patch fob has the same cheerful bright greens and oranges, and more rabbit and carrot charms... this one has a few less rows of Peyote than some others... TOPS, it'll take 3 to 4 hours from start to finish.

Magnificent Magnolia Needle/Sewing Case and Matching Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more Magnificent Magnolia Set
This little fob is really elegant! The green, cream and white are highlighted by the golden yellow. They've put white opalescent flower beads into the fringe.

The matching stitched case is about 3 x 4... the original picture shows a rectangular shell button but the kits have been released with the most gorgeous creamy mother-of-pearl fillagree drops instead... two of them. Background on this case is natural linen.

The browns, greens and golds in this set are stunning. The incredible case kit comes with a feather waxer, a wooden owl ruler lots of butter-scotchy beads, and luscious hand-dyed green silk ribbon - which is there to hold scissors.

The case is lined with green calico fabric, pockets for those wood tools and waxer... lots of special stitches, and an awesome beaded edge to the case.

Silken Threads Set from Fern Ridge - click to see more Silken Threads
No sewing case this time around - but a Pin Ball! The little tiny spider fob is actually a good beginning piece to do - it's about half the size of all the other fobs they do. The fringe is controllable ad colors are pretty. I can't tell you the spider charm is 'cute' because it looks real!

The kitted matching pin ball is 1-1/2 inches in diameter. You are simply doing a thin band of Peyote - like the little Santa Claus bracelet they have - and then wrapping it around the ball! They've even attached the little bead/ball feet on there for you, so it won't roll away! Another 'real' spider charm on this one too!

Just Love Needle/Sewing Case and Matching Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see more Just Love
Oh just the prettiest pinks and whites in this! The case is stitched on white - and the kit comes with the heart thread board. The fob features 6 different shades of raspberry pinks, with silver accent beads down at the ends of the fringe. (They are actually tiny hearts.)

Not too large a project... but this one has those 'frizzies' of beads in the fringe that like to get tangled with your thread while you're stringing them!

Juicy Bite Set from Fern Ridge - click to see more Juicy Bite Set
Wow... lip-puckering bright yellow and greens! This case is stitched on white, and lined with a pretty retro-flavored pear fabric lining.

They have tiny glass beads in here that look like avocados - they dress the case corners, and this kit comes with a cute miniature wooden pear thread board.

Nashville Sweet Bag and Fob Set from Fern Ridge - click to see more Nashville Sweet Bag and Fob Set
If you like bright aqua with touches of lime green - this is for you! Playful flowers decorate the fob and the fringe is full of clear aqua glass flower beads.

The Bag is made of the yellow-green fabric included and lined with the bright aqua fabric. I love that tiny covered spool though... but I can't tell you what it does... because the kit I brought home with me to write your words has all the cool materials and beads in to but no paperwork! (I have to go back to the shop and get that fixed!) Anyway, the sampler on the bag front is about 3 x 4.

Buttons and Black Lace from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more Summoning from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more Wooden Scissor Tray from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more
  • Buttons and Black Lace is a little more subdued... really pretty metal and pearl buttons to add a silver hue to the classy black and white.
  • Summoning is the back of a little witch working on her spell! The artwork on the outside of the case is the same as the beaded fob... cute charms too!
  • Then, the Wooden Scissor Tray! Wow, is this cool! The Girls have commissioned wooden storage trays to display your scissors with all your gorgeous finished fobs attached - and then remembered to add storage for the matching stitched cases! Measuring about 2-1/2 inches high and about 4 x 7 in size, you have 12 holes here to hold scissors, and room for about 6 cases inside! You COULD use this tray for other scissor fobs and little cases and cushions as well... we won't tell! Really a neat storage piece - it really shows off all your hard work, and lets you enjoy all those stunning beads!

Boardwalk Revue, Bunny Rabbit, Bee Bungalow, Acorns Among Us, and Love You This Much
The Fern Ridge ladies - Pat and Peggy - have been busy during the lock-down BEADING their fingers off! We have 5 new Peyote Beaded Fobs to prove it and 4 matching stitched needle cases! The fobs are always the showy-glitzy half of the sets, so I am cheating here and showing you the glamour and sparkle. Our models will be finished in a few weeks - at which point I'll have much more fun pics to show you, but for now... here we go!

Each of the fobs comes as its own complete kit. I have taken P & P's classes at market, and can tell you that (once you get past the first three rows of the Peyote!).... it is super-fun and the neatest thing to do. (You cannot do these in the car!) You hold this in your hand to create...and you work from the straight bottom edge up to the pointed top.

Boardwalk Revue Beaded Fob from Fern Ridge - click to see moreP & P present these as either a color chart to follow (I like that) or a page of horrible run-on numbers that knitters love - and know how to follow! It's just so funny to see how different minds follow instructions! So, you finish the (approx 1-1/2 inches) of flat beading, attach the top decorations and scissor clip. Then, you get to string all the flashy and cool beads all along the bottom to make that one or two-inch fringe. They give you the actual bead pictures in the instructions, so you know what (pre-labeled) beads go where. The most challenging part of the fringe is keeping the finished strands out of the way of the one you're stringing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the finished products... I'm just so impressed with myself for making them!

Boardwalk Revue - Gorgeous seaside blue crystal and frosted beads, a bicycle and flip flops, and even a teeny seahorse!

The only one this time around without a matching needle case. Complete kit comes with beads, threads, findings and charms.

The ladies also suggest tucking a special pair of scissors into one of the slots as another accent. The whole thing is such a neat idea... such a fun project to stitch.

The 1-1/2 inches of Peyote itself should take approx 2 to 3 hours, the 2 inches of fringe will be another 2.
