But then I switched to wool - which is soft and so pretty. I'm using wools that are too thick for rug hooking, but perfect for penny rugs and these little cases.
I decided to add eyelets and a cord to some of them so it can be worn around the neck. I don't guess it would work for jogging, but I'm a walker and it will be fine for that!
Some fun polka dots.......
And here's one with a funky little bird in bright colors which is a surprise gift for DD#1.
I found out that students can bring items to sell at Cambria Rug Camp, so I might stitch up a few more to take with me. If I sell some it might help pay for the cost of the camp and that would be a good thing!
If you'd like to make your own you can find the tutorial on the blog called Just Something I Made - she has lots of good projects there and a huge following of over 3,000 people! Her version of the case includes printed picure embellishments - very different from the way mine turned out.
If you'd like to win the blue leather case with the white heart on it, please leave me a comment and I'll draw the winning name on Sunday night when I get home from a family weekend. I've never done a giveaway on my blog before, and it's way overdue! Good luck!
