Needle Minder: Cat on Pillow

$12.00
Unit price per
Quantity
Keep your needle handy while you cut a new piece of thread or step away from your work with no worries of misplacing or dropping it into the cushions or carpet. 

You'll also avoid creating holes in your fabric when you tuck your project away by storing the needle on magnet on the back of the hoop. 

This enamel and metal cat on pillow is inspired by our Catnap kit (and the window comes from On the Canal). It makes a perfect little gift for your favorite crafter (or anyone who wants to attach it via the strong magnet to decorate a jacket, backpack, or sewing tote).

To use a needle magnet, you place the enamel on the front of the fabric in your hoop. Then you put the magnet that comes with it behind the fabric. The magnet is strong enough to ensure your needle will stick to the cute enamel while you're stitching.

Details:
  • Made from hard enamel and polished silver plating.
  • Measures approximately 1.25" long
  • Strong circle magnet approx 5/8" diameter
  • Needle not included

What a cute needle minder this is! The design is charming, and it is very well made. The magnet is strong so it keeps needles in one place, safe. I like the way it can go on the stitched piece, itself, or stick to my metal box to use there with extra needles. So even if you didn't want the extra weight on your stitching, itself, the needle minder is a useful notion to have!

Fun design to stitch

I have done embroidery for many years. I have found that these designs are fun to stitch. Stitch instructions are written clearly. I like that everything needed to complete the design is included in the kit.

FAQs

Can I do this if I've never embroidered?

Yes. All the instructions you'll need are included. If you've never handled a needle and thread, it might take a while to get comfortable. Take your time, keep your thread length under 18", and just be sure you're not tangling things and that you're pulling the thread all the way through. Once you've got this rhythm established with simple straight stitches, you can keep adding to the stitches you've mastered. The stitching guides actually tell you which stitches to start with on a design if you're new to embroidery.

I see the option to add on scissors and needle minder. Do I need them?

You don't need a needle minder. It's simply a nice extra: it attaches to your work in progress with a magnet and will hold your needle when you need to put it down. 

You will need scissors, but any scissors that you have already will also work. Our scissors are the right size for fitting into the storage tin that comes with each kit, and I like having a few pairs for my my many works in progress.

What can I do with my finished project?

You can finish it in the hoop and hang it or get a frame with a circular cutout and glass cover. My favorite thing to do is to finish the design in a nicer hoop and then display on plate stand or small easel. I add it to styled vignettes around my house.

Will the printed pattern wash out?

No. You may wash your finished project but the printed design will not wash away.

What's the difference between kits and fabric prints?

The kits include not only the fabric print but also floss, needles, a storage tin, and hoop. The fabric prints include just the fabric print and the stitching guide. You will need to supply hoop, needles, and floss.

ABOUT

Every Stitched Stories kit includes a variety of stitches and motifs. There are small scenes you can complete in a sitting, all of them coming together in the finished project. Immerse yourself in the imagery, color, and classic embroidery stitches. Recall your life’s past stories and consider the new ones possible.
