Needlebooks

A few months ago, I participated in an online needlebook swap. The swap required participants to make 3 needlecases per set, and then send in your sets to be swapped. I just made and sent in one set, and the 3 needles case I received are posted at left! My needlebooks came from Holland (basket of flowers made from wool), Maryland (30's bowtie wallet style), and Texas (cute chicken...the wing lifts up to store your needles!)! The needlecase that I made and swapped, below, is made from 30's reproduction fabrics and was an original design.

Conni, these are wonderful! I especially like your 30's fabrics, and your original design with the bunny in the middle is very cute.
Oh dear, I have a lot of Aunt Grace fat quarters and feel a new project coming on.

These are so cute. I like the 30's reproduction fabric one. My friend made one for me awhile ago. . Really cute 9-patch pattern. It's very handy.

Very cute - all of them! In yours I see several 30s fabrics that I have too! I need to get busy on a project with them.
