From the Summer 2008 issue of Sampler and Antique Needlework magazine the Sampler Sewing Slipper. An antique Quaker sewing shoe served as the inspiration for this sampler-style slipper. The sole of the sampler slipper is hinged to reveal flannel pages for storing needles. Adorning the heel of the slipper is a quaint cottage with a Florentine-stitch yard and queen-stitch flowers. Accompanying the slipper is a fan-shapped scissors sheath that doubles as a pinkeep.
The kit includes Lakeside Linen 40ct light examplar linen, Needlepoint Silk, Gloriana Silk, Kreinik Braid, Gloriana 4mm and 15mm peach blush vintage silk ribbon and ivory silk dupioni. Plus various supplies to finish the pieces. These threads and fabrics are simply to die for!!
I am blessed to have had a mother that taught me how to sew. Once the stitching is completed the real work will start with the finishing into the shoe and scissor keep. This one is going to be a lot of fun.
