Sewing Cradle

Just a quickie before bed: This is the sewing cradle my brother made for me. It's 11 inches long and 6 inches high. It's made of solid pine. The boards that hold the paper are situated with a gap between them to allow an awl to pass between them.

I've put it through it's paces and it was wonderful. It's amazing what good well made tools can do to make binding easier.

These will be up on ebay, etsy and my brother's new etsy shop.

Ooh, I've been looking for a well made sewing cradle. I'll definitely check these out whenever there's an auction or Esty listing up!

I made a very crude version of this about 2 years ago, wooden and nice and stiff but ugly as hell, so it's nice to see my brother make my idea come to life. and using it is a dream. I know he has 3 or4 made So I'm waiting to get the word to list one on eBay.
