After two years in storage, I pulled out Ellen Chester's/ With My Needle's "Fair Maiden's Etui" and finished it. I don't know why I waited so long. It actually took longer to put it together than to stitch it, but it was worth it. The only thing I really changed was the verse on the bottom. I wanted to include a verse of scripture, my initials and the date.
Putting it together wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought. I did have trouble using a curved needle, so I ended up taking the bottom apart and attaching the scissors keep to the lining and then re-sewing them together.
I wouldn't change anything else-----except the pink bows. I'm not a "bow" person, but I admit they add a little something to the etui. The pearl ruler weights it's side a bit. Nah, I wouldn't change anything.
