THREE HUSWIFS



Yesterday I made three needle cases, or huswifs, as they were traditionally called. The pattern is from Remembering Adelia, a CW diary and pattern book by Kathleen Tracy.

Below you can see how they look opened out. There are three small pockets for needle packages, thimbles, etc., as well as a felt flap to hold needles and pins. It trifolds and ties with a ribbon to close. Nice!

I am really happy with how they turned out! And they were quick and easy to make. A day well spent.
