not quite sure this is the place to post this but anyway...
I'm a big fan of 80s clothing and they almost always come with shoulder pads so I have quite a collection of them as I never leave them on.so what to do?
make a needle case!
basically just sew the pads together and sew a little piece of fabric on one side to slip your really blunt embroidery needles into.
add a buttonhole and button for closure and you are set!
tip:works best with some kind of knit fabric pads
