Anyway, about a year ago, I was searching the net for a great idea to make for myself a needlecase. Attempting to be more organized in sewing matters (something I have been trying hard to learn from my friend, the domestic diva) I thought it would behoove me to have an exquisitely beautiful needlecase. My wanderings, and hunting and pecking, led me to several sites with the most gorgeous silk ribbon embroidery I have ever seen and some of the most magnificently hand made needlecases, or "hussifs" that you could imagine!!
So, I bought the books, the supplies and anything else I thought I would need to craft up this little confection. In the meantime, it was my good fortune to inherit a lovely sewing stash, complete with a treadle machine in the cabinet. So, I was all set!!
Here is what I came up with, some for myself and a few for ebay and some friends!!
After I got over this, all these lovely vintage findings languished in the closet of my sewing room for a year.
Until last week, when inspiration struck again!!!
I have made about 6 or 7 of these sweet little bracelets with this same stash of vintage velvet ribbons, buttons, belt buckles and many other things.
I thought they would be darling for prom, which is coming up, but then, wouldn't it seem that the guy would need to give this to the girl????
