Community Cast Video Day 29

Today’s video introduces a pin pocket project.

Post video note: In the video I said I would use batting. After cutting all the pieces, I decided this would be too bulky for my fulled wool. My new recommendation is to Not us batting with medium weight or fulled wool. Batting may be desired with tropical weight wool.

Materials to gather:

  • Silk – cut to 9″×4.5″ (or a pretty cotton, a floral stripe would be great.
  • Wool – cut to 9″×4.5″
  • Optional – thin batting – cut to 9″×4.5″
  • 50 inches of 1/2″ to 5/8″ to 3/4″ wide ribbon
  • Embroidery floss

*You can adjust measurements to suit your needs and fabric. Remember to adjust the size of all layers and the length of the ribbon.

  1. This would be a great workshop project!

  2. What era range do you think this might be?

  3. I’ve seen this style/type of pin/needle holder show as early as the 1850s in publications and as late as the early 20th century. The ribbon on this one make me think it is later. Without doing a burn test, I suspect it is rayon. The silk piece leans towards the second half of the century.
