Pins and needles

We have both got gorgeous Cath Kidston sewing boxes, which are a real treat to use. But it is nice to have some equally lovely accessories for sewing that inspire and delight you while you work. We have been browsing among the talented sellers online and gathered together a few of our favourite sewing, knitting and crochet storage essentials to share with you.

These fabulous pin cushions will brighten up anyone’s sewing table or, if like us your creative pursuits spread through the entire house, the kitchen table, the dining table, the bedside table…

1) This sweet little fairytale toadstool house pin cushion is handmade by Manxmiss on the magical Isle of Man.

2) The union jack pin cushion comes in kit form, so you have the fun of making it and then using it while working in your next project!

3) What could be more timely for 2012 than this vintage coronation mug pin cushion?

4) We love this cushion, instructing you to please enter your pin, created by Sixes and Sevens!

When you’re sewing, knitting or crocheting on the move, it is sometimes better to take a selection of tools with you in a case, just in case!  These are a few of our most-wanted finds…

1) The classic Cath Kidston knitting needle roll, which comes complete with wooden needles – perfect!

2) An unusual, but innovative, way to store needles safely in this handmade wooden needle case.

3) This fun felt owl needle book is also handmade and the owl himself is a neat little pocket.

4) For crochet lovers, who are notorious for taking their work out and about with them, this luxurious crochet hook case is a must, with its myriad of pockets.

If you prefer to have matching sets of accessories, fear not!  We have discovered two delightful options which would make wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day or even Valentine’s Day, if you can point your partner in the right direction!

These beautiful house themed designs are so sweet!  The needle house case is made by Carolin Lovis of redneedle and the lavender-filled home sweet home pin cushion was created by Alex McQuade.

These fruity designs are handmade by Rae Batteson and each one is unique.  The apple needle case and pear pin cushions can be found in her Folksy shop,  Blue Fox Wood.

We hope you have enjoyed browsing with us!  LouLou & Will x
