A Hussif I made with my favorite color, yellow.  Holds needles and pins and sewing tools.

This is a Jacobean piece I am working on, here are a couple of pictures.

This is a Hussif I made in a class with Gloria Mc Kinnon from Australia on one of her visits to the US. This class was where I learned to make a husif and I have made 7 of them. It is so much fun to chose the fabric and all the colors of thread to make them.  Embellishing the outside is almost as much fun as the inside.

This is the inside of the husif, where there is a spot for scissors, a tape measure, a thimble pocket a pincushion and a needle keeper.  This was all made in brazilian embroidery and  done by hand except for the quilting on the bottom piece.
