The bag will be wrapped in a double layer of coloured or (at Christmas time) "snowflake" tissue paper, tied with a ribbon.

  • Handmade
  • Materials: upcycled fabrics, ribbon, felt, decovil interfacing, button

These unique sewing needle cases have been carefully created using reclaimed materials, making them a delightful gift for someone who loves embroidery or sewing.
As we all aim to become more eco-conscious and to mend our clothes rather than throw them away at the first sign of any wear, more people require somewhere to keep their needles safely. These needle cases aim to provide that with their felt "pages" to hold the needles and an attractive cover that is backed with fusible Decovil - an interfacing with leather-like qualities. The cases close with a button and loop fastening.
Dimensions: 10cm x 10cm (4 x 4 inches)

I have four of these currently available; you can make your choice through the options.

Pastel Patchwork: made from patchwork using remnants of cotton print fabrics in pastel shades of blue, beige and cream with different styles of patchwork on the front and back.

Ribbon weaving: made from ribbon pieces and braid in different widths and in shades of red and gold woven into a pattern and bonded in place. This one is lined in vintage damask fabric.
I have previously sold one in shades of navy, pink and cream - if you would prefer those colours, please get in touch!

Icicles textile art: made from a remnant of upholstery fabric and featuring, on the front, a piece of textile art of icicles made from appliqued batik and marbled fabrics and with additional machine embroidery stitched onto white felt. If you like this piece of artwork, do take a look at this listing too

Orange Damask: made from a remnant of vintage damask fabric in shades of orange and purple, with a purple lining.

Although the other options are no longer available, if you would like a similar one making for you, please contact me. I have included descriptions of them below:
Blue Damask: made from a remnant of vintage damask fabric in shades of blue, with a navy lining.

Crazy patchwork: assorted shaped pieces of cotton print fabrics in bright colours arranged in a "crazy" pattern featuring frayed edging.
Clematis trail applique: made from upcycled suede effect skirt fabric and lined in floral print fabric with an appliqued clematis flower on the front. Dimensions: 9cm x 9cm (3.5 x 3.5 inches). This case is designed to coordinate with a bag that could be used as a small sewing or craft bag and can be found by clicking here:

‘Austin’s Bag’ is our second order from Barbara and words don’t come near to say how delighted we are. The fabrics used, the standard of sewing and the end result are nothing less than high-end! Barbara you are so talented; thank you. Austin with love joining his cousins Emily and Julia, whose bags were our initial order, on library visits. All three book bags are unbelievably high standard. The grandchildren will enjoy using them. Xx

This bag was excellently made; not a flaw in sewing. It's both sturdy and beautiful. I love the four sections inside (with a zipper for one) and that the lining is a light color--everything is so easy to find! I've gotten many compliments on this bag.

Barbara made me a beautifully crafted phone pouch, to a pattern we worked out together, as I had very specific requirements. She was generous with her time and expertise in helping me come to a final design, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. The item arrived quickly. I will most definitely be asking for more bespoke pieces in the future!
