This week I finally finished a miniature which I had started some time ago: a Shaker style sewing box. I copied it from a full sized one I had seen pictures of. The original sewing box was 19th century from Pennsylvania.
For the box and handle I used cherry wood which I bent using steam. The sewing box is lined with paper with a William Morris print. I made the little sewing spools and knitting needles and bought some of the other accessories. I have put the box in the Drawing Room of my dolls house.
