Jan Timmons posted a lovely capture of some of her Grandmother’s sewing things called Might come in handy some day— seen below.

And when I commented I mentioned that I had one of those little sewing kits that I had found in a hotel room over 20 years go, so she suggested I try to photograph it.

Well here it is. The usual set up in the High Tech Kitchen Studio with my little bear from the early 60’s (about 2" tall seated) as a handy dandy kit holder.

Here’s how it was done. 2 shots of the Kitchen Studio. The light is on over the stove for these shots, but for the actual Threadbear shot, the only illumination was from the two 3 LED flashlights (torches).

The black backdrop is an old piece of velvet pinned to the cupboard and taped at the edges with masking tape. The bear and sewing kit are on an old pickle jar under the velvet.

Side view.

Front view.

The background’s highlights were adjusted in PSE’s RAW converter by increasing the black level to about 10, and it was played with a bit more using enhance/adjust lighting/shadows, highlights. Stubborn highlights on the background were cloned out.
