I made this yesterday evening...it's a needle case.

I never thought I'd end up spending my Friday evenings making stuff like this, but Nao was mending and waxing his newely found leather satchel so it was actually a nice way to spend an evening (ol' fogeys).

I need a needle case because I lose needles faster than I can buy them, and after seeing sort of nice but really expensive ones in Liberty's, I thought I'd have a go and make one. I used some japanese fabric again, and some vintage linen and an old leather button. I can't find the pinking shears so the edges of the pages will have to stay like this for a while!

Today I upholstered that chair I bought in the market, I'll post them tomorrow as I'm totally nackererd!
