Not really sure what category this fits into, since it’s just a small container for needles.
My own need to keep my needles organized led me to make this little case for @Bunny1kenobi, who does a lot of needlework herself. I had made a large case for my darning needles, which were always falling to the bottom of the bag I keep my hooks and stitch markers in, and a slightly smaller one for Deanna, who does some lovely cross stitching.
The cases are 3D-printed in wood PLA, from a free file on Thingiverse. Nice and utilitarian. Too plain, IMO. Old timey needlecases were usually very plain and utilitarian, or fancy and enameled or metalwork. Best I can do is paint. So, I gave them each a nice ivory base coat and, then…I realized that I had no idea what I was doing. Pinterest/YouTube to the rescue. Lots of good tutorials on how to paint simple flowers and leaves. My case was the guinea pig, and I just copied what I liked about that attempt onto my swap partner’s case.
Then, I dug out my beads and prettied hers up a bit with some brass findings and Swarovski crystals.
The needle minder was a quick little add-on piece, since it’s also a nice thing to have when stitching (and Deanna had mentioned something about wanting one). I just removed the shank from two cover-it-yourself buttons, covered the buttons with some vintage-y looking fabric from my stash, and glued on some rare earth magnets.
Aside from the buttons and a few colors of paint, these were projects made from stash.
