Jenny has created a tutorial over the past five days on her blog. The instructions are for making your own hussif. "Hussif" is a term well known to those who are interested in antique samplers and needlework. It was also referred to as a "housewife". They were traditionally used to carry needlework necessities when such supplies were expensive and important to ladies of the house. Having a hussif helped keep those items, such as needles and threads, close at hand.

If you're a needleworker of any sort, you might want to consider making one of these for yourself.
You'll find Jenny's tutorial (it spans five days), interesting and easy to follow. You're also going to love exploring the rest of her site. She has all kinds of fun projects for you to try.
