Seafarer's Valentine


The Seafarer’s Valentine is a box styled after the antique Sailor’s Valentines
that were given by
sea captains to
their wives and
sweethearts.

It is stitched on top and on the inside there are 4 pockets for threads
and miscellaneous needlework items.


This is the first of a three part series. This will also feature a series of “letters” that we will be posting on our blog between the sea captain and his wife.
These will be included in piece as well.

We included complete stitching, box construction and finishing instructions.
