You may want to choose your 5 printed cotton lining fabrics first before choosing their linen and thread.
Kelmscott Designs Putford scissors are shown in the photos.
I'm thinking about giving Mrs. Waddelow some other needlework pieces in the future so you may want to think about that when you get your supplies...I'm sorry that I can't let you know how much fabric or thread beause I won't start designing the pieces for a couple of months.
