Meet my new needle case

This is another of THOSE finishes - just a few stitches here and there to take it from the UFO pile to sitting proudly in use.  I cant even remember how long ago I started this but it would be anywhere up to 10 years ago.  All that was needed was to sew in the scissor pocket, and the button and loop on the front.  I remember I had made the scissor pocket "back then" and had done as per the pattern -blanketstitch around the edges.  It was done in the same gorgeous silk fabric as the outside, but it was very wonky looking so I discarded it.  This scissor pocket is very plain by comparison but is does the job so that is all that matters.

This one was not even on my long UFO list for the year.  I found it when tidying the shelves in my sewing room.

Nice finish. I actually love finding "lost" projects while cleaning or looking for something else.

Hey Marilyn I love that too. Believe it or not but I had that pattern too and made it up for a friend of mine about 3 years ago. I love the way the gate joins on the front. Great finish.
