Jenns Case is Finished



I had posted that I was going to make Jenn a case for her set of Harmony needles like mine and I just finished it.  There are some differences though.  On the outside of the case I used a design from Tante Zolder and placed Jenn's initials in the center.  She loves teals and browns and I was lucky enough to find a beautiful collection of fabrics which incorporated these colors.
 The next picture shows the outside of the case and the beautiful striped fabric I used.  This has teal, brown, olive greens and tans and in between the stripes are tiny stripes of gold metallic.  I love this fabric!!!
 The next pictures shows the zippered case at the bottom for her cables and I included a small case above that for her crochet hooks.  This I didn't include on mine and how I wish I had.  Oh well.....
 The next picture shows the place for her needles.  The bottom row will hold her straight needles and the top row will hold her double pointed needles.  I even found a pair of scissors that have the colors of this case in them so I made a place for them also.
 The last pictures shows the small case at the top for her little markers and such.  This was alot of fun to make and I love it when a plan comes together.  LOL
And now I'm faced with finding something else to work on.  Back to my sewing room I go.  LOL
I hope all of you are having a lovely week so far and that you've gotten plenty of stitchie time in.  I find it helps me maintain my sanity.
Blessings as always,
Barbara
