Strega's Needles & Hooks

I needed something small to stash all the needles I use for sewing together knitted or crocheted projects. I decided to use a heart pattern that was initially designed to be a dishcloth. I made two of them out of 100% wool and connected them with a just a few stitches at the top of the 'humps'. Then I threw it in the washing machine and left it for about an hour until I decided it was about the right size. When it was thoroughly dry, which took about 1.5 days, I zig zagged a piece of fabric in the inside where I had first attached a couple pieces of elastic. I then zig zagged it again around the outside and ...
Voila!! a case for my sewing needles, needle threaders and a few safety pins.
