A Gift for the Gardener! Sew a Roll-Up Seed Keeper

Store your seeds for your next gardening season by slipping your seed packets into this darling, handy roll-up. After filling the fifteen pockets with your seeds, just roll it up, and tie the seed keeper closed. Store in a cool, dark place. Laminated cotton protects your seeds and keeps moisture out. Don’t forget to use a Teflon presser foot on your sewing machine, or, add some Teflon office tape to the bottom of your existing presser foot for smooth sewing on oilcloth and laminate fabrics. Finished size: open: 30″ high x 12″ wide; closed: 7″ high x 12″ wide.
