Victorian Boot

This is a companion piece to the fan pincushion. This is a needlecase, with wool felt "pages" inside to hold needles. The victorian boot is also a good motif for a crazy quilt.

If you look closely, you might see that these silk ribbon roses "stand up tall". That is because they are Beaded Spiderweb Roses. When you stitch the spiderweb foundation, you do so over a Mill Hill Pebble bead. A pebble bead is a little bigger than an E bead and has a nice big hole in the center so you can fit a large chenille needle thru it when you get to the silk ribbon portion of the rose. I like the effect.
