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.

Strange Honey
Fern Ridge's Pat and Peggy have one more new set of miniature stitched needle case and matching Peyote Bead Scissor Fob. Strange Honey is the title... both are worked in gorgeous Autumnal shades of corals, oranges, bronzes, with a little cream and cranberry tossed in! Kind of strange colors for Fall - but honestly, the fabric since the sewing case is gorgeous, and the crystals and beads on the fob trim are exciting and vibrant!

The teeny case measures something like 1-1/2 x 2 when it's closed. Complete kit contains the charts, fabrics, beads, threads, ribbons and even a tiny wooden bee and ruler! The fob will finish in 4 to 5 hours... that kit includes all the necessary needles, threads, beads, a bee charm and the findings.

Fern Ridge Collections has new Needle Cases and Fobs!
Pat and Peggy were here for a two-day retreat, and these charming needle tubes and scissor fobs were the projects! We are a FEW extra kits left-over... maybe a treat to yourself?
  • The Thistle Floral Needle Cases nestled in that gorgeous embossed wooden box - you will be doing flat Peyote beading to cover 4 glass vials to tuck into this cute little 3 x 3 x 1-1/2 inch wooden box! Complete kit contains that box, all the beading materials and little glass vials to complete the set. Matching fob is available separately. The medallion on your box top will be an antiqued brass medallion. What you see in this picture is the Reclaimed Silver we made in the class. Your topper medallion will not be the hand-made silver, sorry!
  • Spooky Needle Cases and Sidney Fob is the Halloween version of this awesome project. You'll cover these 4 vials with orange and black beads for your little box. We love the artwork around the sides - it's a wrought iron graveyard fence that has some damage in it... like a Zombie broke out of the graveyard! Your complete kits for this set contain the wooden box, vials, all the beads and thread necessary for everything, along with a filigree medallion piece for your box lid. Again, the fob is available separately.

  • Bohemian Paisley Sewing Case and Beaded Scissor Fob - All black and white... with pretty mother-of-pearl accent buttons, this set will work up in a jiff. The case is TINY and the kit contains all fabrics, buttons, threads, and ribbons. The beaded fob is just the perfect size to work up, and would look stunning attached to a black pair of scissors!

Single Beaded Scissor Fob Kits
Single Beaded Scissor Fobs - These are all 'singles'... they do not have coordinating sewing cases at this time (they probably will not ever.) The perfect size to learn Peyote Beading on... you work these in your hands. You stitch the flat part first, then string the beads on there to make the fringe, and then add the cute charms and clasp up at the top - which attaches to scissors or whatever. The beading always confuses me when I start the first two rows... but when you get the hang of it, it's so much fun because the beads feel so good in your hands and they glisten in the light!
  • Blue Sampler Bird - Features denim beads and creamy beads that look overdyed.
  • Jeorge the Jelly Fish has pearl-y colored beads in his fringe... deep grey blues and pearl.
  • Ollie the Octopus is full of bright marine blues, his crystal beads remind me of wet waves. They are a delighful mix of ocean blue colors.

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.
