needle cases

I have always been interested in sewing accessories, I have found a few vintage needle cases, and it inspired me to make up one of my own. As a quilter I like Sun bonnet Sue. I love to look at the blocks on a quilt and pick out the dress combo I like the best. Well here are a couple of my SBS, needle cases, I just drew out a shape I liked and went from there, to open it you just lift it up under the bonnet and the needles are inside. I also made the ribbon pansies.

Wanda, now you are very clever with the sunbonnets and pansies.
Love them. Yes I do use acrylics, pretty much for everything.
I do iron to set tho'.aloha Lilla

These are so sweet! My mother is a quilter, but I never quite got the hang of it. This would be a clever gift idea to suggest to her...or maybe I could try my hand at it, if it isn't too difficult? I'm always losing needles.

Thanks for visiting me!

Oh goodness how adorable..I have an affinity to pin holders as I do a bit of sewing when I can find the time...!

Wonder if I could make one in a blue suede shoe, in honor of Elvis? LOL
Loved reading your posting on the Way Back When blog :)
