Drawing on the ingenuity of past generations for inspiration, the dainty, embellished rings that decorate this pincushion and tape measure cover are worked with techniques developed to create Dorset buttons in the 19th century.

Pretty bunches of knotted flowers in blue and white sit within the covered rings and each button is attached to a background of natural linen that is further embellished with cross stitch.

Substitution Notification:
In this kit, the following fabric substitution has been made:

Element: 28-count linen

Original linen: The 28-count linen in the original project is not an evenweave linen, with a thread count of 28 in only one direction. This resulted in a rectangular counted thread border for the pincushion. This linen is no longer available.

Substitution linen: 28-count evenweave linen that has the same thread count for both warp and weft. Therefore please use the adjusted chart included in this kit. The instructions for the tape measure are not changed.

PLEASE NOTE: The instructions for this product are available within Inspirations Issue 111 and are not included with this product.
