Needle Case... thanks to Lynda

Thanks to Lynda Cansfield's inspiration on her blog I decided to design/make my own needle case. This one is almost 3.5" wide by 3.25" tall. My husband felt the top layer should have some depth so I used a piece of wet felted wool sweater with quilt batting sandwiched between the sweater and dark brown wool felt. There is lots of blanket stitching... and some fiberfill in the muzzle.
Bear Lovers ...if you would like to make one of your own, just leave a comment or use the "contact me" button to the right and I'll email you the pattern and some instructions.
Thanks again Lynda for the "inspiration"!!

I just came across your adorable bear needle holder. I would love to make this. We rented a cabin a few summers ago, came with it's own real bear. That bear made several rounds in the area. Beautiful, yet scary.
