Embroidery Giveaway – “Hannah” Pocket

Time for another giveaway! This month I’m offering up a copy of the “Hannah” pocket design. This design is based on an extant example in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, accession number T.42-1935.

The machine embroidery design is digitized to be used with thicker threads like Madeira Lana Wool Blend Embroidery Thread*, 30 weight silk embroidery thread, or 12 weight cotton. For hand embroidery, silk or crewel wool would be appropriate for the period. The original pocket is stitched in tiny stitches in golden-green silk thread. 

This color is seen in other pockets from the time period, as seen in the following examples. This is an intricate single color design at the Royal Albert Museum and Art Gallery.
A pair at the Museum of London, bound in matching yellow silk:This is an unfinished pair of pockets, also at the V&A.

And a tiny doll’s pocket at the Nottingham City Museums and Galleries. 

The simple floral sprigs and bows of the Hannah pocket would work up quickly, and be a charming addition to your 18th c. wardrobe. More details about this design can be found in this blog post.

Enter below to win 1 copy of either the machine or hand embroidery design and PDF download of instructions. This giveaway is only open to those in the United States.
