More about this digital file


"My inspiration came from the beautiful cottage gardens I saw in England, and to a lesser extent, from my own garden. Inside are four 'pages' of doctor's flannel for your needles and a little pocket for your scissors and a few threads. Although the stitching on the needlecase is extensive, the stitches are mostly simple ones." - Joan Gibson
