I thought I would show you some old needlecases I own. These needlecases have belonged to various members of our family but apart from one I'm not sure who they belonged to. If I remember rightly they all came out my MIL's sewing box when we cleared the house after both my MIL and FIL had died. We cleared the house in 2005.
I love this case as it is cross stitched on Hardanger fabric with what looks like a piece of old blanket in it. The Hardanger fabric is stretched over cardboard and lined with brushed cotton.
These items live in a drawer, I don't want to use them as they are quite fragile now.
