Old Fashioned Sunbonnet Sue Needle or Pin Holder

This little pattern will work for a 10" quilt block, a potholder or the Sue I'm going to make next..... a needlecase. It's as you can see, a one piece pattern. Her hat band is there to take off as is the little bouquet of flowers she holds. If you choose, you can embroider her little arm in,
the choice is yours. I think my choice is to take a bit of lace to make a nosegay, and add a few tiny flowers. For the needle case, simply cut 3 pieces, embroidery the nosegay and add the hatband on the top piece,the third piece will be the back piece..and the middle piece will be the actual needle or pin holder. Will show mine when done...


  1. What a cute little quick pattern, can't wait to see your needlecase.

  2. LOVE her! Just put a link to this post on my blog. Hope it brings you a few extra clicks.
