Mount Vernon Seed Bag Cross Stitch
The Mount Vernon Counted Cross Stitch Seed Bag Kit is inspired by the seed bags of the early American gardeners. Generally hand sewn from cotton material with a drawstring closure, these bags were used for the safekeeping of garden seeds until the next planting season. Similar seed bags were doubtless used at Mount Vernon for the five different gardens, including seeds for flowers, vegetables, fruits, and herbs, reflecting George Washington's gardening passion. The seed bag can be useful for today's gardeners for seed storage or will make a wonderful gift bag for seeds or other garden themed gifts. A wide variety of such seeds are available for purchase at the Shops at Mount Vernon.
The cross stitch kit includes instructions, needle, DMC floss, and 18 count Charles Craft fabric. The finished sewn size is 5" x 8". Designed by Ceil Humphreys for the Posy Collection.
Made in America.
