Hussif or Housewife

"Hussif or Housewife"  traditionally, a folding bag or roll taken by men going to war 1914-1918.  The Hussif or Housewife is a useful way of keeping all your sewing equipment in hand.  

This pattern has been designed with lots of pockets for all those loose items like buttons, packets of needles, thread etc.

The Pdf pattern can be found in my Folksy & Etsy shops 
(see side panel)


  1. That's nice; I have my Dad's from when he was in the army 1943-52; not nearly as pretty as yours!

  2. That's really lovely and so useful! Suzy x

  3. Very lovely, I have one I made in a SAL a few years ago.

  4. I hadn't heard of it before, lovely practical idea xx
