Now for the request part of this post. Do any of you happen to know where I could get a really nice pattern or tutorial for making a hussif? I'm trying to compile ideas because I have committed myself to teach a 2 day workshop in crazy quilting next winter for our local quilt guild. They would like to end up with a useful project (rather than 'just' a block). I've toyed with the obvious (tote bag or pillow but I think everybody has all they need of those!) and have now gotten myself stuck on the idea of a hussif. Something that is much more than just an ordinary needlebook - one that would hold all sorts of necessary sewing items in a pretty way. The pattern has to be relatively simple because I suspect I will be teaching different levels of sewing ability and the actual putting together portion of the class would need to be done on their own, but I also want the finished article to be pretty. Any suggestions or ideas or places I should check out? Please leave any suggestions in the comments so we can all benefit.
