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.
