'Keep me handy', cross stitch needle book pattern


    This delightful little needle book has a lovely ‘vintage’ feel to it, from the choice of colors, mother of pearl button, and the use of dupioni silk for the lining.

    Perfect has a gift, or keepsake. There is a place where you can add your initials, a small greeting, or the date of your choice.
