quick needlecase gift




Make this with a piece of old linen and image on front.


Simple trims are best like rickrack for this homey kind of work.


I do put real wool fabric for the pages, stops rust, here in the Islands a problem.
The key to a nice case are the needles, pins etc. inside.
Get the best you can find, I use English needles and pins.
Couple of pearl corsage pins, a nice snap or two, and golden safety pins from Walmart.
There, now go make one or two.
