Tiny aran needle book, scissor case

A needle case for the “Box of Air” idea padded and lined in a satin jaquard in cream with birds on. I quilted the edge and round the feather in a running stitch. On the back (pics not come out) I quilted the word “Air” in pale blue.
The wings are in a white glitter felt. I sewed them oon in the same way you’d sew book pages in. I think it worked ok.
This is the tiniest aran I have ever made. I had some left over wool from Son’s christening gown 1ply 100% wool. I then got 2 bodkins and “knitted” this 1/12th scale aran (own design) and matching rectangle suitable for a dolls house as a mat or tabel cover. I think they will be a one off as normal knitting is more comfy.
back of scissor case- 4 layers bound in white bias binding.
Front- sorry awful pic. Shows glittery pale blue feather and the remaining faux suede lining. It should stop any scissors piercing daughter’s work in her sewing box. I did a running stitch at the top of the “pocket”.
