What are you most proud of? Translating something fairly spare in its original design into something using complex patterned fabrics. I'm not 100% convinced I got it to work, but it was certainly interesting to try, and I plan to return to this type of design in the future. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You need to be comfortable with small curved piecing and Y-seams, which can get quite fiddly. I used flannel for the lining. This turned out to be a good base for a needle case, better than the felt I had originally been using.
