Needle cases

I have been having fun for day 6 finishing two little needle cases. (I have
to admit to making them yesterday....I was very productive...I just added
the sequins and beads today!)
The first one is for my cousin Ena. She and I made up this 'ME' logo many
years ago (our initials) and I had made a rubber stamp from it. I stamped it
onto felt, cut it out and applied it under fine tulle, onto paper fabric had
been stamped with lilac paints. Inside is felt. I have used a pinking rotary
cutter to cut out the paper fabric and the felt...a gadget I have had for
years and never remember to use!

The second needle case is decorated with a fabric flower cut using a sizzix
machine. I used velcro dots to make it fasten.
