Needles seem to have this magic quality that makes them disappear without any effort. Pins are a little harder to lose but for some reason needles vanish just when you need them. This little needle case is a great project for using scraps and teaching students to take care of their sewing equipment.The Oh Sew Easy Needle Case is pretty, efficient and fits well in any sewing container. Makes a great gift for mothers and grandmothers!
