CD Needle Case

At our last Lost Pines Crazy Quilt meeting our fearless leader, Lyn Gaskill, demoed the making of a CD pin keeper. While stitching it was suggested that possibly a needle case could be made from the CD's. This is my result of that discussion. I used 4 CD's, 2 to form the front and 2 to form the back. Used the same construction techniques of putting the two CD's together for the front and back but covered a CD for the front and back with felted wool for the needles, placed a piece of ribbon between the front and back CD's to join, added a button to the front and a buttonhole stitched catch to close it.
