This is a Victorian Sewing Needlebook Pin Holder Blue Wool Mitten Shape Embroidered Detail Made by Child. From studying the stitching, I would guess that this needlbook was a child project meant to teach the child hand stitched embroidery ending with a sewing notion that the child could use.The lower wrist portion of the mitten lifts up to reveal the fabric pages for the needles. The blue wool on both sides has received holes and moth damage. The stuffing is cotton with a blanket-stitched border. The mitten measures 4-1/4 inches long and 2-3/8 inches wide.
