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 🙂
