Needlecases.....

Early last year Michelle sent me over some lovely drawn patterns which she had used in a table topper.....

These have been a great 'pick up and go' project and I have been 'picking up and going' for quite a while ages and ages with them..... and this year they were marked with my UFO mark!!! UFO#4

I have finished the stitching and self - bound the hexagons

I decided to make them into individual needle cases

I used cotton blanketing inside .... but this was not the greatest... I ended up having to edge it all to stop fraying.... felt would be better.... (but it is lovely and soft and kind to needles)

now I have nine little needlecases which will be great for the gifties box.... 


Thanks Michelle for those lovely stitchery patterns..... if you don't know Michelle pop on over... she does lovely stitcheries and is always coming up with new ideas....

I've decided to celebrate with a banana muffin


and since I have so many needlecases I thought I could share?
I will pick 2 people to get a little needlecase

- just let me know in a comment which is your favourite design - 

I'll have a chat to Mr Random at the end of next week

Righto, Gotto Go....  I'm thinking of making some pincushions next

  1. They are all beautiful, and make wonderful gifts. I like them all, but would have to choose the bunnies as I don't have room to keep them anywhere else

  22. Beautiful work. You seem to accomplish so much. My favourite is the "Needle" one.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh how lovely, your embroidery is so neat! I think you know which one is my favourite... the bunny!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A muffin is a great way to celebrate...and it is well deserved, too! The needle cases are gorgeous and the perfect size. As hard as it is to pick just two, I'd have to say the birds.

    ReplyDelete
  25. These are beautiful, and that muffin looks so yummy! I think my favorites are the birds and the one that says Needles! Sweet!

  31. Quilt as you go/self-bound hexies...my favourite...they have so many applications...love them as needlecases...and pincushions, now there's an idea I hadn't entertained, you've got the wheels turning...
    They are all gorgeous but I like the top row ones best...the bottom row hearts and bunnies are cute too but just not as much "me"...
    Enjoy making your pincushions...I'm sure that banana muffin is but a distant memory now!...

    ReplyDelete
  32. They are just lovely, and the bunnies are rather cute..what a great way to use the stitcheries..and that muffin looks delicious..
