This felt applique needlecase has pockets for packets of needles and room for a small pair of scissors.

A hand stitched gift may be just what’s needed for a friend and small gifts can mean much more than how much they cost. A little needlecase or pincushion for a sewing friend could just hit the spot.

For a friend moving to a new home a small hand-appliqued wall hanging with tiny yo-yo flowers would be unpretentious and could easily be mounted in a plain little corner of the new home.

A very young person might love a little felt bag or a small heart brooch.

A hand stitched table runner in the prettiest of fabrics with lace edging could give a lift to a worn and tired piece of furniture. So easy to wash and iron as well.
