New Orleans Chatelaine
Glorious flowers elegantly stitched upon the purity of finely woven cotton, once referred to as the crowning glory of the Old South. Silk dupioni is resplendent and reminiscent of a way of life and a time gone by. Plump silk tassels accent the stunning elements crafted to hold a stitcher’s most treasured sewing implements. Add a treasure keeper to hold a tiny porcelain doll or silver thimble passed down from mother to daughter. Luscious camellia blossoms in every shade of pink from rich, dark magenta to the purest white herald the coming of spring. Creating a sewing chatelaine is so rewarding and useful. This beautiful strap holds a heart-shaped pincushion, scissors case, strawberry emery, and treasure keeper. Shadow work, Colonial knots, and pearly granitos are the elements of this design, which is sure to become a family heirloom.
