Needlecase

It's been a long time since I did one of these. So I decided to make one.
Hope you like it.

I made the inside from a piece of half tanned leather. This gets very stiff after drying, so the inside won't get wobbly after some time of use. If the inside gets soft it can't keep the top in place, wich is a problem.

I love that needlecase!

BTW: where did you find those pins?

I'm glad you all like it :-)

I think the pins are from historic enterprises in USA, but I am not sure if the have them anymore.
They could also be from a danish guy. Who has gone out on buisness... and I can't remember his name.
Guess that won't be much help :-/
