I have been collecting vintage powder compacts for awhile now and wanted to incorporate them into my cross stitch. I have turned them into needle holders by putting a piece of white sheet magnet where the powder used to be. Each one is different from the others and may have a flaw or two, but that’s the beauty of them. Some even have initials or a name on them. Thanks for looking at my new project. 🙂 The picture is clickable for a larger one 🙂 Oh, these were Christmas gifts for some of my stitching friends – I’m still working on more 🙂

The “I’m sew glad” piece I made for my friend Sharon’s visit recently. Note the tiny charm on the back. I love those! Thanks again for looking. 🙂

Thanks again for looking 🙂 Seems pictures and wording won’t go together today! I’ve tried everything, but it’s still probably operator error. LOL
