Mini Mesh Zipper Bags
This seems to be the 'year of pouches!' I found another size and style of zippered pouch to help organize your smaller needlework projects and tools. These little guys measure 5 x 8. They feature TWO pocketed compartments, and TWO zippered closures. I've taken a pic of my hand in each of the pockets... don't know if you can see the difference or not.

The front pocket is clear vinyl on the front. The middle 'wall' and back of the pouch is colored fine mesh. A really nice size for a small project, or just for scissors, candy and tissues! They're lightweight and super-handy to keep little things safe and 'locate-able' in your bigger bags!

We are in love with this new size of plastic zipper pouch. It measures 9 x 13-1/2 and features two zippered compartments.

Round Tool Towers By Greg's Turn - click for more
Round Tool Towers By Greg's Turn
Kind of like a Scissor Block -- only round! We have a new gadget that is designed to carefully hold your scissors, some needles, maybe a laying tool or seam ripper, and even a small ruler or chart. Wayne-The-Wood-Guy has a son, Greg. This is by *Greg's Turn.* It's Greg's turn to turn wood into cool gadgets for us like Wayne has for years!

This little guy measures approx 2-1/4 inches in diameter and stands 3-1/4 inches high. It features a felted bottom and 4 compartments, Two that are lined with felt in the bottoms that are about 2-1/4 inches deep. Store your scissors or rippers or laying tools in those holes. The bottom is soft and padded so tips are protected. The third, smaller hole has a magnet in the bottom -- that's for needles. The magnet keeps them in place in case your tower tips over. It is about 1-3/4 inches deep.

The slit is there for a small ruler or chart -- it is 3/4 of an inch deep. (I was absolutely NOT going to tell you that my mind sees a little face here! I see two eyes, a little nose and a mouth! But the little mouth is crooked because Greg has to make the slit in the direction of the wood grains so that they don't split! So I have all these little people looking at me, and they are so cute! Isn't that dumb?!) So, you have this little friend... all of them are different colors because they are made of different woods, and their little mouths are just every-which-way... and they are so FUNCTIONAL and HANDY! I wonder what they are saying....
3-Inch Bicycle Corner Board - click for more 3-Inch Corner Board - click for more Something Fun for a Sewing Case! Wooden What-Nots!
We have a lots of trinkets I fell in love with when I saw them. Use them for Stitching Party favors, package ties, something functional in your stitching bag... something cute to display in a sewing case, or in the case of the acorn -- teathered to a pin cushion displaying left-over threads from a special piece you've just finished!
3-Inch Corner Boards - Aren't these just the prettiest little pieces of wood? Retromantics has sent us charming 3 x 3 inch Corner Boards to help you measure that infamous *in three and down three to begin.* demand. You plop it on the corner of your fabric, and look to the lower right. The first hole puts you at in two and over two. The very bottom corner is 3 and 3. Truthfully, if you stitch much, you can pretty much gauge your 3-inch starting point. This piece is at its best when you tuck it into a pretty sewing case, or include it in a framed needle work tool shadow box. Retromantics has *Blue-Washed* the Bird Cage board, which accents the beautiful Victorian birdcage floral design they have lazored into the wood. Very pretty!

Miniature Scissor Blocks -- click here to see more! Miniature Scissor Blocks
OHhhh... we have the cutest miniature scissor blocks! Made from assorted woods, these little 1-1/2 x 2 x 2-3/4 chunks feature a slanted top, complete with ruler slot. Along with that slot, notice the larger hole near the top? That holds a pair of 3-1/2 to 4-inch embroidery scissors. Then, notice the two smaller holes? They store needles. Each of them as a tiny magnet in their bottom -- just enough to make your needles *cling* so if the block get knocked over, no needles errantly spill to the floor.

Not big, not heavy, just functional and cute! The slit can hold a small pattern, or one of our rulers or paddles that double as thread organizers. If you order multiples, we'll try to mix up your woods, but try to match ruler and organizer woods to blocks. All of these are just the coolest things!

4-Inch Wooden Ruler Thread Organizer
*Needlework soothes the soul and inspires the mind* is the advice offered on one side of these 4-inch thread organizers... while *The Silver Needle* is the other advice for good living on the other side! Measuring 1-1/2 inches x 4-1/2... your calibrated ruler includes 5 holes to loop threads for works in progress.

It slips into the slot of our miniature scissor block, so even if you have no threads looped on it, the ruler is still there... and it's stored neatly in your block. Pretty Handy!

The legs fold up under it, and a fancy bolt fastens them in place, making a bundle that is only 3" thick! It takes 2 seconds to unfold... and is just the right size to tuck under your feet while you're stitching! Perfect for stitching weekends, traveling, whatever!

Fun New Hand-Embroidered Dish Towels from Bareroots
Oh gosh these are so much fun to stitch... you transfer on the design, and then just regular straight stitching with a few Lazy Daisies... and PRESTO... a pretty towel nobody wants to use!

But DO use them, they are nice towels, and they'll make you feel good! Towels come with the pattern to transfer on (use our Sulky Stick 'n Stitch transfer film), the flosses and rik-rak for the edge trims.

Stick 'n Stitch by The Sulky Co - click to see more Stick 'n Stitch
from The Sulky Co
This is the COOLEST STUFF to transfer your designs for stitching (or punchneedle)! Basically, it is a rinse-away film that you COPY (as in 'Xerox!') your line drawing onto. Then STICK it (it's not real gummy or sticky - just clingy enough to stay in place) on your towel or whatever you are working on.

You stitch the design, then wet the 'film' and it disintegrates, leaving your stitching! You never have to trace a design ever again! We love it! The package comes with 12 - 8-1/2 x 11 sheets, plenty to make lots of cute towels!
Tiny Baby Bibs -- click to see more Tiny Baby Bibs
Matched pieces to our cute little hooded baby towels... these small 'dribble bibs' are charming counterparts to stitch and cherish for years and years to come! The same rich Terry in the same colors, each bib measures approx 9 x 10, and features the same woven aida panel (actually a front pocket of the bib) as the blankets -- only it measures approx 2-1/4 x 8. A snap closure makes them easy to dress baby.

They are NOT lined with plastic, and they are NOT huge... so definitely for a newborn, or 'delicate' bib for a little baby, these are not a 'turbo-everyday-super-duper-red-spagetti-sauce' variety of bib... these are baby shower and 'stitched with Granny's Love' bibs! Very soft and really cute!

Hooded Terry Cloth Baby Towels
Such lovely towels to dry off the tiniest member of the family... this is the kind of thing that you'll never part with! I still have my daughter's baby towel that I stitched 20 years ago... and SHE still loves to see it! (and it's in some of my favorite old pictures, too!)

Hooded Terry Cloth Baby TowelsThis is a beautiful collection of 100% Cotton terry cloth hooded towels made by the Dohler Co in Brazil. Available in 4 colors, each towel measures approx 30 x 30 inches, and features a corner pocket with an aida-weave right IN the fabric. You have an area of approx 2 x 10 inches to personalize your towel with baby's name or some cute motifs from something you've treasured in your pattern stash!

Each towel is piped with woven cotton edging, and is so wisper-soft! The colors are just as dreamy! Pink and Blue towels feature white piping. The yellow towel features lime green piping, and the lime green towel has light blue trim. Precious!
