treasure box for the stitcher

$ 45.00

I was working with a pile of my most treasured plant-dyed fabrics and threads, and I felt compelled to make this little collection. This is the kind of gift that I LOVE to give (and receive). It is my favorite color palette and I find the mix of textiles to be inspiring and special. The sturdy matchbox-style box measures 2.75 x 3.75 x 1.25." and is covered in a hand stitched patch and includes a full listing of the contents on the back side.
