Keepsake Box Leaflet

Designer Thea Deuck describes this design beautifully:

This elegant project will really appeal to your love of fine things. The Hardanger is very easily mastered with our clear diagrams and instructions. The design features some lacy specialty stitches on antique white linen, using Perle Cottons and bright red gold and white colours. Using the required count of linen, the stitched designs will fit inside the lid of a beautifully styled Victorian style wooden music box available separately. (search Amazon for the Cottage Garden Music Boxes) Inside the black velvet interior, the hand wound musical mechanism plays beautiful music when the lid is open. It’s enclosed in glass, so you can see it working as the music plays! The box can be used as a stitching box, jewelry box, or for those special treasures. The Keepsake Box Design is a great project to work on, something that has that old world charm and that personal touch but doesn't take long to make! - Thea
