I have finished the hussif for my friend..
I have tried to keep it fairly simple but elegant, and still have all the practical pockets that we quilters need.
I think I have achieved that...
The hussif folds in three with the same fabric binding and ties to hold it closed.
This picture shows it open with it's needle book, pigma pen pocket, little strawberry pincushion, thimble or needle threader pocket and scissor pocket..
I feather stitched around the hussif along the binding to frame it...I think it adds a nice finishing touch.
Now onto the next Christmas project..
