Re-enactment needle case

Recommended Posts

Set of 13th-14th century stamps finally got delivered so tested them out making a needle case. Still need to become familiar with them and how best to use them, but not bad for a first design.

Very  nice. How does the case close?

The lid is a separate piece that slides up the thonging, and is held in place by friction with a inner liner.

That looks really great! Can you share some details, like leather weight and stitch length? What are the dimensions and a picture of the buttt  stitching?

Very nice & neat. Would have liked to see something to give the size or scale; a coin or a ruler or something

I don't suppose there's a pattern for that case?

Only in my head I’m afraid, but it’s a fairly simple design. Two rectangles, one longer than the other, and two circular end pieces. The tooling is just whatever I can fit into the space

Stitch length is 4mm, so fairly standard. Not sure of the weight conversion but it’s 1.2mm calfskin.
