I designed this long (3.25") needlecase after viewing the beautiful Southwest Pottery Loom Series split loom necklaces by the fabulous Frieda Bates. I incorporated many of the motifs Frieda used like Kokopelli, feathers, and geometric pottery designs. To accent it I stitch little peyote feathers and attached them to form clusters of feathers and topped the whole off with a turquoise bear. It is lovingly titled "Following Frieda" and is now in the collection of Frieda herself.
