It's nice to sometimes whip up a small project that can be finished in one sitting. Tonight I made myself a needlecase to tuck into my sewing-kit belt pouch.
I used brown wool for the outside, and black wool to make the needle "page" on the inside. I free-hand embroidered what I'm calling 'a carnation' on the outside, and then stitched a bit of ribbon on to tie the case shut once it's rolled up. Easy and quick, and most of all, useful. What's not to love?
