Needle Case

I finished this needle case for my Mum today. It's quite small as she doesn't have many needles! The outer fabric is left over from a dress I had made when I lived in Malawi, the lining is scrap material I can't remember where it came from! The felt is made from shed fur from our much missed rabbit, Anya. The felt is very delicate, partly because Anya's fur was very fine, partly because this was the first time I had made felt and its not as well made as it could have been!

That is really lovely. I wish I was crafty like you. On a good day my family refers to me as 'clumsy', on a bad day, well, you get the picture. How satisfying to be able to make your own gifts.
