We are thrilled to present Erin Lincoln's very first Quick Stitch Kit! Just wait until you see all the details!
The first Quick Stitch Kit will be released on March 9th and it is entitled "Sewing Staples". Erin has really outdone herself with this one! The stitching dies included help you to make a few different sewing accessories that are not only beautiful, but also super functional. You will have all of your sewing supplies in order just in time for the new stitching products coming out over the next year! Not only will this kit help YOU to get organized, but also make wonderful handmade gifts for friends and family. The team even has a few unconventional uses for these stitching dies that will allow you to take everything in a completely different direction and get more value for your investment in these tools!

Here are some additional details about each of the fabulous products individually!
This mini stamp set replicates some of the flowers found in the dies showcased below, only in stamp form, giving you tons of options for creating coordinating gift tags, cards and more! Here are some basic measurement references for the stamp set:
- label measures 1-3/4" x 5/8"
- numbers measure 1/8" x 1/8"
- sentiment measures 1-7/8" x 7/8"
- large flower measures 1"
- medium flower measures 3/4"
- large leaf measures 5/8" x 1/2"
- small leaf measures 3/8" x 1/4"
The stitching details incorporated into the stamps are just beautiful and stamp so crisply!
Of course there are coordinating dies included for these flowers so you can layer to your hearts content!
I know that one of the first things you must be wondering off the bat is why the numbers are backwards in this stamp set! Well, that is because Erin has developed a clever way to create permanent numbered ribbon tabs for bobbins so you always know what floss colors coordinate with your favorite Papertrey felt colors.
Here is a video showing you exactly how she does it!
Of course, besides the stamp set, this kit contains many of the other supplies you need to create your own floss bobbins! Can you just imagine having a bobbin like this for each of your felt colors? And what a beautiful gift for someone too!
There are two dies in this collection. The smaller die is intended to be used with the cover board included in the kit to create the interior support for your bobbin. The larger die can be used with two layers of felt to create a stitched cover for the interior.
- small interior support die measures 1-1/2" x 1"
- large bobbin cover die measures 1-3/4" x 1-1/4"
The kit includes two 8-1/2" x 11" sheets of white cover board to be used with the interior bobbin die. This 200# cover board is thick enough to create a nice sturdy insert, but thin enough to die-cut beautifully.
You will also receive a full spool of our Fresh Snow Satin ribbon to be used with the iron-on transfer sheets and number stamps to create the labeled tabs for your bobbins.
Two 8-1/2" x 11" iron on transfer sheets are included, which are specially designed to work well with our dye inks. By using these sheets, you don't need to worry about the ink bleeding. As you saw in Erin's video above, these make it quick and easy to create those custom tabs!
The kit also includes one unfinished wooden bobbin box, ready for you to paint or stain in any way you wish! The box measures 3-7/8" long x 2-1/2" wide x 2-1/8" deep.
This charming little box will hold about 6-8 assembled bobbins, making this a great way to keep special floss together for a particular project you are toting around at the moment. Or of course, it would also make a wonderful gift!
Next up is this amazing collection of dies Erin created to make it quick and easy to stitch up a custom needle book.
- assembled needle book measures 5" x 3-1/4" open.
- pocket die measures 2-1/4" x 1-1/4"
But don't let the name fool you! There are all sorts of things you can do with these versatile dies besides using them with felt! A few of the designers have some awesome ideas to share with you! But first…
Here is a video Erin filmed that shows you how easy it is to put this Needle Book together!
Isn't it just the sweetest? And there are endless ways to customize it, too!
The clever slot die to create a ribbon closure is just genius in my opinion!
Of course, with your needles looking so pretty, you also need something gorgeous for your scissors!
The scalloped layer detail on these is what really steals the show!
- assembled scissor keeper with scallops measures 7-1/2" x 3-5/8"
- assembled scissor keeper without scallops measures 6-7/8" x 3-3/8"
Erin put together another video showcasing the fabulous Scissor Keeper dies!
I can picture ordering a pretty pair of scissors from Victorian Trading Co., tucking them inside one of these pretty scissor keepers and giving them as a gift to any kind of crafter! What a gift to cherish! Not to mention, you need a set for yourself too! :)
The scissor keeper is not only beautiful, but it helps keep your scissors protected and in tip top shape!
The delicate floral details that Erin created to go along with these sewing accessories are truly amazing. She has made it so easy for you with this special companion placement die, which cuts several stitching holes at once. By using the chart included in the downloadable pdf that you receive once you order, you can easily create this beautiful arrangement yourself, no experience or designer's eye required!
- large flower measures 1"
- medium flower measures 3/4"
- large leaf measures 5/8" x 1/2"
- small leaf measures 3/8" x 1/4"
- heart measures 1/2"
You can just have fun experimenting with color combinations! You can get even more mileage from these dies by creating your own designs!
The placement die even cuts holes for you to add seed beads, an elegant detail that adds so much to this type of crafting. A test tube of white seed beads is included in the kit, a nice neutral that will go with whatever felt colors are your favorite!
Erin has thought of everything, and one of the signature items for each of her Stitch Kits will be a collectible tote bag featuring design elements from the kit. Not only will this tote bag be great for keeping all of your kit contents together, but you can use it to carry your stitching projects around while you are working on them! The body of the tote bag measures 12" x 12" .

Rebecca says, "Erin's Sewing Staples Kit is amazing–she has literally thought of everything whilst designing it, and as I worked away at my projects this last week and a half, I found myself wondering just what was going on inside that creative brain of hers. Confession: I really don't know that much about sewing (ssshhh, don't tell)…but that's kind of the genius behind the Quick Stitch Kits: You don't have to! If you can thread a needle, you're basically good to go. Honestly.”

Tracy says, "There is so much to love about this kit! In addition to the projects being super cute and practical, they are so much fun to put together.

And I'm also looking forward to making sets to give as gifts!"
