I love designing for Christmas and I love designing needle needs, such as needle cases and scissor fobs. This was so much fun to do. I hope you like it too. The applied cross stitch design is stitched on 30 Count "Putty" from Weeks Dye Works and the entire base of the needle case is 30 Count "Kudzu" from Weeks Dye Works. I used a variety of fibers but an Alternate Color Code is given. The inside of the needle case is constructed from felted wool, also from Weeks Dye Works. It is embellished with my Olde Brass "Bird" and "Hoppin' Hare" buttons. These should be available from your cross stitch shoppe. I used three "Vintage" 1/4" buttons from my collection to sew to the center of the three large stars. A cotton ribbon was used for the closure. Applique patterns are provided. You will receive all stitching directions and all Finishing Instructions. I do have a very "limited" amount of Embellishment Packs, which include the Olde Brass buttons and "vintage" buttons. Go to the SUPPLIES section if you are interested.
