An etui is a small decorative case for holding needles and other sewing accessories. A while ago I developed an interest in making my own fancy needle cases. Who doesn’t have a burning need for an etui?  I have a stack of hand-embroidered pillowcases and dresser sashes that my maternal grandmother made. I thought turning some of these into needle cases would be a neat twist.

Here is my first effort. It opens like a small fabric book. It’s sort of cattywampus. And my ideas didn’t all work exactly as planned. But still – it’s quite pleasing to me.

  1. This is a beautiful idea. Perhaps you should start a business. Niggie’s pleasurable needle work has another new life.
