Huswif Needlecase Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

It's not possible to resist a charming little clutch needle-case.  At least it's impossible for me.   So, I was happy to see that Kaaren Johnston had a wonderful pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make a Huswif needle-case.  What a terrific gift this would make.  I know quite a few crafters and sewers who would love getting one of these.  How about you?

First Friday Freebie #12 - Huswif Needlecase

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  This month marks the One Year Anniversary of my First Friday Freebies. I can’t believe that a year has gone by already. Wow!

Next to pincushions, I L-O-V-E needlecases. Or maybe now needlecases have overtaken my pincushion madness? But that’s what happens when the word “ONE” does not exist in “one’s” vocabulary. *wink* Two…or more…of something you love is better than one…right?

If you guessed that this month’s FFF is a needlecase, you’re right. Here is my Huswif Needlecase, fastened shut with a vintage button..

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.
