In the 18th century, the item called a housewife (“hussif”) is one that had multiple uses. It could be a container for small personal items, a wallet, a sewing kit, or a combination of these. This housewife kit is a simple design based off period examples. It has been lovingly assembled in two versions, both containing everything you need to make your own.

Fabrics: Winifred, Sarah, & Mary are all represented in this collection of jewel tones. Deep red Manchester velvet, copper silk satin, pink & gold shot silk taffeta*, chartreuse silk satin, green & black shot taffeta, and a magical purple & green silk blend are wrapped in your choice of exterior fabric and bound with jet black petersham ribbon. The kit is finished with a gravestone wool needle piece and black silk ribbon.

*In some kits, this piece may be substituted with silk satin in the same colors.

Due to the nature of upcycled kits, the configuration of your pieces may vary, but all kits will contain the same fabrics unless otherwise noted.
