The original of this charming needle case from the early 19th century, was stitched on perforated paper. But you know me, bring it up to date, quicker to make, and something to be used. So I have taken large count linen and the original colours to give the same effect, but easier to stitch. These bright greens and cream make a lovely setting for the house and the floral lining is the garden. Using the heat bond enables you to finish quickly and easily and gain exactly the same effect as if it were perforated paper whilst being stronger and more long lasting.
I believe that the old needlework needs to be preserved and copied so that we can all enjoy them, but we need to use these things so they have to be practical. Hence the house needle case came into being.
