The Hollyhock Needle Case is one of the projects the girls at the Vintage Retreat received in their goodies bag.
I love working with felt; it's soft, easily tweaked into shape and projects can often be finished without the use of a sewing machine. The needle case can easily be made in a day. Completing it at a workshop though does depend on how much time is spent stitching versus socialising!
Of course I had to make a second one to check the pattern and used my other favourite colours. Please don't ask me to choose!
The morning was been spent making up kits in the two colour ways - Blue Spruce and Pea Soup.
The pattern and kits are available from my on-line store. Click on the links.
If you haven't worked with felt before this is a nice and simple project to start with.
A kit would make a lovely birthday or Christmas gift!
