Sarah's Needlecase

Sarah's Needlecase by Blackbird Designs.

There are four separate designs that make up this piece. They can be stitched separately and framed, stitched as a needlecase, or as a sampler. Instructions are included for creating the needlecase. My intention is to stitch it as one piece and to make a wall hanging/bellpull out of it.

Flower Vase 77w x 101h
Birds 75w x 64h
Alphabet 75w x 43h
