Strawberry Emories

Made out of old cotton or velvet and stuffed with sand, these strawberries were used for needle sharpening and to keep the rust off of the shaft of the needle. I am going to try to make some out of old red velvet ribbon - and then dot with small yellow french knots - and maybe add a green chenille stem....

Hi Kaari,
I would love to buy one from you and I so love the green on top that just finishes it off perfectly. A find I've hand on my hunt list for years. Lucky lady you are.

Warmly,
