I am inspired for years by a little picture in the book: The Amish Quilt by Eve Wheatcroft Granick. (If you like Amish quilts I highly recommend this book!) At that picture are a few Huswif's, an antique sewing case. While searching for inspiration I came along the picture and thought it was time to make one myself. You can also find huswif's in this book: Pockets and Rollups for my red cape by Edith C.O'Neill. They are made by left over fabrics and so useful.
This huswif is a class I'm going to teach at the shop.
