Over the holiday period I’ve made half a dozen little needlecases with the purpose of trying out different decorations for the front. I’ve played with embroidered block printed flowers, beads and yo-yos. Yo-yos are often called Suffolk Puffs and are a versatile decorative technique which can be used in multiple ways. But for this little needlecase I turned them over to the flat side and divided the shape with thread to form petals. These are very small and fiddly to do but can be made to look like flowers with lots of small petals such as hydrangea flowers.

A tiny bead in the centre and some raw edge machine appliqued leaves to complete my hydrangea.
