Free Download - Mary Wigham Needle Bag

Stopping off at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on my way to the USA, I amused myself by finding small presents to hand out when I met new friends. These turned out to be neat little card bags containing a pair of chocolates from Le Fauchon which I suspected, once the chocolates were enjoyed, would be recycled to make a needle or pin bag. So, I thought you might like the fun of crafting a similar card bag, based upon the Mary Wigham sampler, to be filled with needles, pins - or even - chocolates. Click here for a two page download, with instructions. Try the instruction page first as a practice before you launch into the real thing. But, if you do make a mistake, there is no real problem, is there? You can simply print off another bag.

  2. Cut out these, make another template from lightweight cardboard, glue wrong sides together, laminate and voila ~ wouldn't these make splendid luggage tags! Even the handles make a perfect place to punch the hole:)

  3. Three times in the past 24 hours there have been posts to Needleprint that show up in my Blogger Dashboard, but are not actually on the blog page. Is there some problem with your posts? Have you posted and then immediately removed the posts? Or is it a problem at my end?

  7. I do apologise for the phantom posts - the truth is I couldn't decide which item to post today - it looks as though you have enjoyed this one, so that's lovely. Don't worry, the other items will be posted shortly. If you have any pictures of what yo do with your Mary Wigham bag, it would be lovely to see them - you are so creative with your ideas.

  9. Oh, thank you so much for the free pattern. It is my turn for the round robin friendship exchange with my Historic sampler guild. This will be perfect.
