Lauren from Washington state, my swap partner on Small Quilt Talk Yahoo group, has received her needle case so I am now free to post pictures. I made both the needle case and a scissor case using the pink wool fabric I felted. You can read here the story about this 30+ year old pink wool discovery and felting.
Here is the outside front (before I added the button).
and this is the inside.
The scissor case is in the upper right hand corner displayed with the other goodies I sent to Lauren. Oh – and I added a vintage button to the heart on the needle case.
I also enclosed a fabric postcard but failed to get a picture of it before I packaged everything up and mailed it out. This is a picture of one similar to the postcard I sent.
With one of these on the back containing a handwritten note:
This and other postcard backings may be downloaded from the About.com page here. There are also instructions on how to make these fabric postcards at the same file location.
It was such fun deciding which needle case pattern to use, picking the fabric, and putting it all together. It is my understanding that my package from Lauren is on its way. I’ll share photos of that as well when received.
