Paper Bag Swap

I recently participated in the Snickerdoodle Paper Bag swap
These are the goodies I made for my partner Barbara in Texas She received them last week and I think was quite pleased
The Victorian needle case was what I made for her from the lovely peices she sent The rest were just a few little extras
Now Iam waiting patiently for my parcel to arrive

I am the recepient of all those wonderful gifts. The Victorian Needle Box is something I will treasure forever. I was going to ask for a pattern but recently came across one. They are called
Etuis and were first made by soldiers and seamen in the 19th century. They were based on a Chinese concept of a box within a box. As you can see I have been doing some research on them. Illene, I want to post it on the Snickerdoodle dreams flickr page but not sure where to go to do it, Help.

Your needlebox is great. I searched high and low for this pattern a few years ago, and its a real sense of achievement once you have finished - looks terrific.
