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 on period examples.
- Pre-cut fabric
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.
Fabrics: Protect the light side with Rebel's calming blue, white, and gunmetal silk palette. The individually lined pockets are bound with white petersham while the whole piece is encased in an icy blue cotton sateen and finished with a blue needle book.
