Here is a fun DIY project that is completed pretty quickly (an hour+/-), but you can endlessly embellish it, too. It comes with instructions and access to a DYI video available at Learn with Sarah, my teaching website. Video + Kit = $25; Kit alone = $25.
Felt Needle Case with 4 felt pages to hold your sewing needles and pins. The cases are handmade of madder naturally dyed and eco-printed wool fabric, wool felt pages, and button closure.
