Cute little Needlecase



I think that this little quick to make needlecase is adorable. I also found out that having one of these stuck with the needles that you are using on a project makes it so much easier than dragging around the big one. Just pick out the needles your project calls for and insert. Then when you can catch a few minutes to sew, wall`la, or Whoopie, your stuff is all together, regardless of project. Here's a photo of a kit I put together. This little kit, with red wool, white wool, green for leaves, blue for the little flower and green, red, white threads plus 4 assorted needles, sells for $4.50. Business manager is going to have kittens and tell me that I should charge way more for this. However, ...........
I hate the word 'kit'. Tell you what, I will make up a baggie of good stuff as a prize for the person coming up with a GOOD word to take the place of "kit". How does that sound???? This is for real!!!

Also, if it will let me load all of 2 photos, I'll also post a picture of the 20 count RED BAGGIE. These red baggies sell for $7.50 and $1.99 postage. Additionally, these will be kept in stock.

Just wanted to join your contest. Instead of kits, use "bits" or "bits and pieces" or "little bits"

Judyth - I like the term "sampler." Many folks are using it these days. You could call different samplers by different names, for example, needlecase sampler, red fabric sampler (or Valentine's sampler), etc. Sue

Hi Judyth,
I was going to suggest "caboodle" instead of kit (but I see Debbie beat me to it!). People already associate kit and caboodle, so they would have an idea of what is involved. The "whole caboodle" would include everything you need to make the particular thing, except maybe the needles.

How about a stash cache. After all you are selling everything to make the project right? Needlebook stash cache. All the stash is in the cache to make the needlebook.

How about set? Maybe you could make up a new own word: settie, setty etc. Of course I can't tell if there are some false connotations LOL.

Hi Judyth,
To me, this sounds like such a GOOD 'lil contest, that I too wish to participate, please. I think that all of the suggested words, so far, have all been GOOD. However! All the GOODYs I've ever purchased and received from you have always been GOOD. So... I bet you can guess what my suggested word to substitute for 'kit' will be!... Yep! It's 'GOODY'!! :))
Luv'n'Hugs, ~ Ing ;)

Judy, how about "a needle-case whippet", cause you get everything and "just whip it up" in no time! Debbie rquirion@roadrunner.com

Hi Judyth!

I am SO happy to finally have your blog address. Thanks so much for the great pkg. of reds....your check is in the mail.

That's a very cute needlecase!

Have a great weekend, and stay warm!

Hey Judyth,
What about 'take-out for stitchers'? Then it can be adjusted for the specific project....this one would be a takeout needlecase for stitchers.....after all it contains everything you need for the 'meal'. It's a kit to make the needlecase and a take-out meal is the fixings for a meal......
Just a bit of fun....

Lisa Martin said...

Ok More I thought about it I think the letter K should be added. Then you can call all Kits a SANK (Some Assembly Needed Kit). Needlecase SANK...

Judy, in one of my suggestions, I said, "a needle-case whippet", which I now think should be spelled, "needle-case whip-it", cause you get everything and just whip it up. Debbie rquirion@roadrunner.com
