Finished Needle Case, Box

I am really pleased how this Needle Box came out.  I have no idea why I waited so long to do it.
All closed up.  I made a tassel for the top out of my crocheting thread. 
I crocheted a 26 inch length chain for the cording. But I did double the string.
Opened
The center. Thimble holder and I put 4 layers of batting on the top to make a small pincushion.
I probably should have put more layers  but I was afraid of it being too high.
 The pocket
 The pocket I made was for my little pair of scissors 
I wish I remembered where I bought these. They fold up 

all opened
 Just pull the cord and it closes up. 
Put the lid on and it is secure.
All closed.
Now to find a place on my shelf  in my sewing room.
I must say it wasn't bad doing it.
I didn't pull out my hair nor did I glue my fingers together. But I did have the warm wash cloth close by and paper towels. I had to wipe my hands off alot. But I am messy. And I did use a half of bottle of Aleene's clear tacky glue.
Be careful don't put alot of glue on. Alittle goes a long way. I would also cut  the pieces alittle bigger than what they say. it did take awhile to complete  but I was being careful and waiting for things to dry properly.
Would I make another one?  Probably,  but not tomorrow. (wink)
I found a web site that still sells  this pattern and others.
Hmmmm I like the  Victorian .

Hi...I am the designer of the box you made.

I like the look of your Granny's Needke box. Nice way to make the draw string...I have a collection of about 40 colors of cording and tassels so don' t have to make my own...the kit does show how to make your own. Check out my web site to see all the products that the Rushin Tailor does not carry.
