First you have to find the perfect little tin to keep your supplies in,
Then you have to gather some special fabrics together,
Then you get to the good part, sewing these little treasures!
Klosjes are little spools. I first discovered them on Valentina's blog, then Nadine's, and then I just kept coming across them everywhere. I tried to resist them but when I discovered Janet, Shirley and Ranette were making them, I could not hold onto my resolve any longer.
From what I have read, women all over Holland sit and sew these Klosjes each Saturday. They are either 2.5 or 3 inches finished. Another blog to have a look at and see some wonderful photos is Ingrid's. She has made over 500 spools.
I have only managed to make 5 so far (a little rusty on the handpiecing). I am going to try and only do them on a Saturday, but it could be difficult to stick to as they are so cute!
I am happy in the knowledge that while I am stitching mine, all my new special friends that I have met through blogging are also stitching theirs at the same time.
