Luscious Cotton Velveteens Handyed from Lady Dot
Luscious Cotton Velveteens Hand-dyed by Lady Dot Creates
This is a gorgeous selection of hand-dyed cotton velveteen that is wonderful to use for pin cushion and pillow finishing. Offered in 10 x 18 cuts (each is torn instead of being cut) so you have the straight grain of the fabric.

Good heavy hand, when you use crushed walnut shells or something heavy inside your smalls, you will really like the way this heavier finishing fabric feels. Lightweight calico is simply too thin. 16 yummy colors so far!

Hand Dyed Ball Fringe from Lady Dot Creates Insertion band... Hand Dyed Ball Fringe from Lady Dot Creates
Lady Dot Creates has a beautiful new line of 18 luscious hand-dyed colors of baby-ball fringe trim! Offered in 2 yard cuts, it is GORGEOUS! Lois has some magical thing on her trim... it's like the pull-string of chain stitching on flour bags -- you pull the string and the 'extra' comes off leaving you a string of baby balls that you can simply tack onto your piece without having to sew it into a seam!!!

This requires less planning! You can make your little cushion and THEN add the trim -- not having to fight with attaching it during the finishing. Anyway... 18 luscious colors, they follow the same shades as the chenille - VERY pretty colors!! Presented in continous 2-yard lengths.

Luscious Cotton Chenille Trims by Lady Dot Creates - click to see more Luscious Cotton Chenille Trims
Wow... I bet Lady Dot's Lois is in BIG trouble with her mom -- this gorgeous new chenille probably came from the family heirloom bedspread!!! It is a new line of plump, fuzzy, super-soft hand-dyed cotton chenille -- the kind you find on the charming antique bedspreads.

Lady Dot has dyed a wonderful array of colors -- the names are delightful and descriptive -- and you'll love how well it covers the edges of your pin cushions and needlework smalls. Packaged in 3-yard lengths... we just love it ALL!


Since no two computers see colors exactly the same, we are giving you a close-to-but-not-exact DMC thread number by each package. Please remember, these are only estimates to give you a general idea. You can't hold us, or Lady Dot, to those numbers, because in dyeing, just as in computing, nothing is totally consistent.

Lady Dot's Eyelash Trim
Eyelash Sizzle from Lady Dot Eyelash Snow from Lady Dot We have a new style of hand-dyed trim by Lady Dot Creates -- it's 100% cotton, and looks like a fern frond! It's Eyelash -- a thin strand with little 1/4 inch long 'frizzies' coming out from it.
I think because it's thin, it'll be best on smaller cushions, it'd be cute as 'grass' beneath stitched bunnies and in little flower gardens. (imagine a sewing case... you open the inside to see a tiny stitched garden, and here is that trim -- right in the needlework!)
I think you could make darling rabbit tails -- use several strands like a tassel fringe.

Dyed to match Lady Dot's existing colors, we have six of her most popular colors so far. Algae is a soft green, Licorice -- a dark gray to soft black, Sizzle -- that gorgeous rich red, Snow -- white. Then we have Vanilla which is a cream and finally Vintage which is ivory and taupe and simply goes with everything!!!!!!!! Packaged in 9 yard lengths.

Rayon Ribbon!
9/16 of an inch wide and three yards in length, this soft, shiny ribbon is gorgeous! The solid colors are basically solid -- not blotchy -- just an ever-so-slight color variation here and there. Vintage is the color with the most variation.

We use this product to 'rouche' around cushions and ornaments. You'll see it twisted and looped while being anchored with beads -- Shepherd's bush and JBW show a lot of finishing with this treatment, and our Mona uses this technique a lot in her finishing as well. Very soft and easy to work with.

Rik Rak!
1/2 Inch cotton trim -- cotton takes the dye differently, so colors look more relaxed and sometimes softer and more 'faded' (even though that is not the case.)

You can sew rik-rak right into your seam or tack it on with more of the glass beads. Offered in 3-yard lengths.

Lady Dot Chick Parade Limited Edition Finishing Pack Lady Dot Summertime Limited Edition Finishing Pack
Limited Edition Finishing Packs! from Lady Dot Creates
Lois has compiled limited edition packets of her glorious finishing velvet and trims -- coordinating the colors so you can finish multiple cushions or small pillow and have them go together!!! Her assortments include 3 different cuts (approx 12 x 12 each) of her hand-dyed velvet, along with lengths (about 24 to 36" each) of FIVE various coordinating trims. Her chenilles, rik raks, balls and ribbons are all in these... she made these special color packets just for our recent market. (SO... we will not have them for very long, as they are limited!)
  • Chick Parade -- Pastel pink, green and lavender -- baby or Spring.
  • Summertime -- Bright aqua and violet with yellow and orange chenille -- looks like happy birthday to me!

Lady Dot Hand-dyed Cotton and Wool Flannel for Needle Pages and Finishing Hand-dyed Cotton and Wool Flannel for Needle Pages and Finishing
Lady Dot is now offering cuts of hand-dyed 56ct cotton that is wonderful to use for needle pages inside your needle and sewing cases! The pieces measure about 17-1/2 x 18 and come in a vanilla (cream) color or snow (white.) You want these because the material is heavy and substantial -- not see-through and sheer -- and your needles will be very happy and safe poked into it. Not to mention how perfectly straight it is, and how nice it will look inside your things!

Doctor's Flannel is also new. It is 100% wool, a yellower *natural* color. These cuts are 9 x 15... something else dreamy to line your stitched pieces!!!!!


Lady Dot Pin Pulley and Scissor Hive The Pin Pulley and Scissor Hive
Here is a pair of what-nots just for fun by Lady Dot. The Pulley features a felted wool pin cushion ball (assorted colors) decorated with old fashioned safety pins and a couple of old buttons. It has hand-dyed tape measure twill tape wrapped around its squatty wooden base. Overall, it measures about 2 x 2. It does nothing except look cute and hold a few more pins and needles! No assembly necessary.

The Scissor Hive is now sold out.



Lady Dot Finishing Packs
Lady Dot Finishing Packs Finishing Packs! from Lady Dot Creates
Lois at Lady Dot has made us some special assortment packets of her trims and velveteen finishing fabric... 3 velvets and 4 different trims in each pack... for ONLY $13 EACH! They are color coordinated -- and the idea here is to provide you with several options for finishing pin cushions, ornaments and sewing cases! Instead of trying to choose ONE color option... these packs give you coordinating trims and backing fabrics... so you can actually finish matching sets of things if you want!

Each pack contains 3 velveteens approx 9 x 10 in size, as well as 4 matching trims -- a mixture of ric-rak, chenille, baby balls, velvet ribbon, eye lash chenille -- all the beautiful trims Lady Dot makes! Some trim lengths are a yard long, others are less... but you have enough to do several pieces out of each packet. The base velvets will always be the same in each pack -- Lois tells me the trims will vary, for a little extra fun! We have started with five color options: Autumn, Spooky, Primitive, Ho Ho Ho and Icy!
