I love old cigarette cases and tins. I always see them at boot & antique fairs and I finally realized the perfect use for them, a needle case. I picked this one up the other day and thought I'd give making one a go. It worked out just the way I'd imagined it would and this one even had space for embroidery floss too.
Meant it to be a present but I decided to gift it to myself instead. This tidy little case should help cut down the 4-letter expletives spewing forth when I hunt for misplaced needles. Now I just need something for misplaced scissors, seam rippers, invisible markers, sunglasses, car keys... ;)
Have a case you'd like to repurpose? Whip Up is featuring the tutorial on how I made this one - thanks Whip Up. Email or comment, let me know what you think!
