Quilter's Prop Kit

Updated: Mar 19

I signed up for an Icebreaker Dinner on one of the evenings during QuiltCon. It was sponsored by four of the nicest quilters: Lindsey from Pear Tree Market, Kaitlyn from Knot and Thread, Laurel from Snowberry Street and Laura from The Gathering Quilt. During the dinner we had a paper bag swap. We were told a small gift and of course, I TRIED to stick to the instructions. Honestly, I didn't go much over budget. But if you know me, you know my gifts are usually extra. My new friend got a QuiltCon labeled Holland Pouch filled with some fun props to add to photos for social media!

I searched my selvages and even used a "Q": from an alphabet print for the label on the handle. The Holland Pouch pattern from Center Street Quilts is really easy to follow and fun to dress up with a quilted exterior.

PROP KIT CONTENTS:

  1. Embroidery Scissors Kit Scissors, Needle Case, Thread Bobbin, Awl, Thimble and Needle. Since this needed to travel I used cork scraps to make little covers for the scissors and awl. I also wrapped some embroidery floss onto the thread bobbin.

  2. Dark Wood Bobbins I had extras from a set I got for decorating my studio. I wrapped one in scrap lace and then added a lace bow around it.

  3. Unfinished Wood Bobbins I had extras of these ones too. I wrapped one in some embroidery floss.

  4. Ruler Twill Tape I had this in my ribbon collection so I cut off 10". Wouldn't this be so cute for a photo when you want to show the size of the pieces?

  5. Cork Heart Magnets I could see these just as a cute prop, so I added some that I had made recently. You can learn more about them and how they are used on my last blog post.

  6. Greenery and Flowers Finally a few stems of greenery and some artificial flowers can go a long way to brightening up a photo. These are just small clippings from a flower and greenery stem from Joann Fabrics and Crafts. I stuffed a lot of extra flowers in there for padding during the flight, but you really only need a couple.

  7. Flower Pins I made these using Flower Beads, Glass Head Pins and E6000. You literally just dab a little dot of E6000 just below the head of the pin and insert it into the bead and then I set them upside down to dry. I also made a little felt piece for them to travel safely on with scrap fabrics sewn on.



If you make yourself a kit, I'd love to see it and what items you add to yours! Please share on social media with #quilterspropkit and feel free to tag me (@snugandstitch).
