Felt Needle Cases

These needle cases were a EGA project from Needle Arts Magazine, Summer, 1979.  No I haven't had the pattern that long.  It was a class just taught last month at our Embroidery Guild Meeting.  I made one in browns and tans - looks like Fall (or very '70's ) to me and I did the other in pinks - very Spring-like.  Stitches used were the ribbed spider web stitch in the center and other stitches like chain, buttonhole, fern, Palestrina knots, and open cretan.  It was a fun project - I'm giving the one with the pink stitches to my daughter.  If she has a place to keep her needles, maybe she will be inspired to stitch more often!!
