Strawberry Pen Wipe

Pen wipes were common desk items in vintage times when dip and fountain pens were used. Fashioned with a decoration the base was used to blot the pen before writing. They were often given as gifts. I'm offering a strawberry pen wipe. All made from hand dyed wools. The base is made of three layers of wool shaped like a leaf and stitched together by hand. Sitting on top the green leaves is a red strawberry with green cap and stem with hand stitched black "seeds" in an "x" pattern all over. The berry is stuffed with wool. The leaves measure about 6 x 4". The berry is about 3" long, not including the stem. I'm kindly asking $35.00 which includes shipping.

I only have one of each of these thread waxers right now. They're made using pure beeswax, which comes from our own hives here in Northern Ontario, and they have a wonderful honey scent. Waxers have been used for centuries by stitchers to condition their reduces fraying and tangling, and the thread glides smoothly through your fabric. Each one comes in it's own bag for storage. Price is for one waxer, with bag, and travel fare is $5.00.
