prototype needle case # 1

I'm trying to write instructions n how to make a simple felt needle case, these need to be easy enough for a complete beginner. So I have made a prototype which will be fastened with a button once I find my button box ( or to be more truthful, once I move stuff away from the cupboard so I can get it out)

At the moment I am using a felted wool blanket and this will involve the learning of buttonhole stitch and running stitch.

So this is prototype #1 so I can get some idea of measurements.

and this is the selection of dyed blanket pieces ready for the next attempt, I quite like the Orange one at the bottom.
