Notions: A gosh darn cute Sewing Kit!

I just couldn’t resist sharing this Vintage delight! This Pattern is for Crochet however; if like me you are Crochet challenged you could Knit a square and then use the making up instructions below to finish.

MATERIALS:

CLARK’S O.N.T. or J. & P. COATS PEARL COTTON, size 5, 1 ball.

Steel crochet hook No. 6.

½ yard narrow ribbon.

1st rnd: Starting at center, ch 2, 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sl st in 1st sc made. Ch 1, turn. 2nd rnd: 3 sc in same st where sl st was made, * sc in back loop of next st, 3 sc in next st (working over both loops). Repeat from * around, ending with sl st in back loop of 1st 2 sc. Ch 1, turn. 3rd rnd: Working over both loops, make 3 sc in same st where sl st was made, * sc in back loop of each st to center sc of next 3-sc group, 3 sc in next sc (working over both loops). Repeat from * around, ending rnd as before. Ch 1, turn. Repeat the 3rd rnd until piece measures 5 inches square. Fasten off.

FINISHING … Fold 3 of the 4 points to the center of piece. Sew adjoining sides together, thus forming a pouch. Sew a 12-inch length of ribbon to point of flap. Sew remaining 6-inch piece of ribbon to bottom of pouch. Stick needles and pins through a piece of felt and put in pouch. Complete contents of pouch with an assortment of thread and a thimble.
