This sewing set embroidered with Icelandic traditional motifs is mounted over a lined Skirtex panel and then glued to a wooden blackboard. This lovely set has a pocket for scissors, a small pincushion, a ribbon loop for the spool, two metal rings for the threads and a magnetic needle minder.
This model has been inspired by the wonderful book “IslensK sjónabók – Ornaments and Patterns found in Iceland”, of Birna Geirfinnsdóttir, published by Heimilisiðnaðarfélag Íslands (The Icelandic Handicraft Association). I had the permission to reproduce the motifs of this book and I am very grateful for this. The book itself is a wonderful publication with translation in English and it is a huge encyclopedia of motifs from Iceland.
