Embellishing

Then I proceeded to embellish with lace and beads. I attached the tube thingy to the front cover to use as a pin cushion and made a tassel fob for my scissors. I used the precious little "frog closure" to hold the tassel cord in place. Then I added 3 layers of felt to hold needles. I still had the 3 pockets (two with zippers) for thread, bits of ribbon etc. Presto...from jewelry case to needle case in one evening. Enlarge photo to see what a clever needle case this makes.....

Beautiful! I love to do this kind of "alterations" too!
I love your blog; the garden, the sheep, the CQing. It's going into my favorites.
