There are three different main patterns, the bottom front of the case, the back and the top flap of the design. There are eyelets, woven stitches, Amadeus heart and other stitches in this design. The case is a tri-fold that opens to reveal a pocket to hold your scissors, laying tool and a small ruler. With a wool page to hold your needles, you are ready to stitch anywhere you like.
