Lee's BJ05 design to fit jewelry case: Lee's Needle Art, Inc.


Name of project: Lee's BJ05
(since I do not know the name of this particular painted design)

Designer: Lee's Needle Art, Inc.

Type of needlework: Hand painted needlepoint

Number of photos: 5

Lee's Needle Art's website: http://www.newleesneedlearts.com/

Comments: The first photo above shows the finished product including both the stitching and finishing. I even went the extra mile and added a few pieces of jewelry in order to better showcase the little jewelry case.

This was actually an impulse purchase. When I saw the design with the already chosen threads for it (sparkling), to me this looked like the perfect little traveling jewelry case. I purchased that little cutie from Pat's Stitching Destashing blog. The original owner of this project had already selected the perfect threads for it, threads from a company that I was totally unawared of before, the Renaissance Designs company and I must say that I love their metallic threads. Isn't just great when you discover something new, new to you anyway? If you want to see the different kinds of threads once on the website, you need to "Select a Category" and then you can see the different colors that they offer.

On the photo above, you can see Lee's painted canvas BJ05 with the threads that had been selected by the previous owner together with Lee's jewelry case.

Photo taken after I have completed the stitching part of it.

For those of you who may be wondering what the inside of the jewelry case looks like, I thought of taking a photo for you.

This is just another photo of the jewelry case. You can see two little jewelry separators so that you can have multiple levels and there is also a little leather strap with a snap inside the cover where you can hang some jewelry. This is very well made actually and quite practical, mostly if you are traveling and you want to bring just a few pieces of jewelry with you.
