I have completed a couple more things for the 'innards' of my hussif. I know this hussif is seeming to take absolutely forever to get done, but it's getting there - I promise!
First of all, I made this needle keep. It's a large button blank covered with embroidery and inside I glued a couple super heavy duty magnets (tricky little beggars to get to stay in place while the hot glue dried - they kept wanting to leap together like bunnies in heat). As you can see a needle sticks very nicely to it and won't be so easily misplaced while I'm working. Of course, having said that, the secret to success is going to be training my brain into actually putting the needle onto it!
This little creation is a crocheted thimble holder. Being that I don't actually USE thimbles it's rather a waste of space in my hussif, but that didn't stop me from making it. I just like the look of it!
