Needle Case Tutorial
Keep all your needles and pins together in one place either in the house or on the go with this handy little needle case.
Sewing Bee Fat Quarter set by The Craft Cotton Company in Navy
Felt 25 x 8 cm
Batting 28 x 12 cm
Ribbon 10 cm
Take four of the fat quarter pieces and cut 2 pieces 8 x 7 cm from each, giving a total of 8 squares.
Take one of each of the different fat quarter pieces and sew these four pieces together to make a square. To do this take two of the square pieces and place them right sides together and sew down the left hand side, repeat this with the remaining two pieces to give you two pieces consisting of 2 squares. Now sew these two pieces together by placing them right sides together and sewing along the long edge. This will give you a front piece. Repeat for the other 4 squares to make the back.
Take the front and back pieces and place right sides together, then sew down the side edge.
Place this on top of the batting piece and add quilted details by sewing a line of straight stitching down the joins between the squares.
Take the remaining fat quarter and cut a piece 28 x 12 cm.
Place the patchwork front piece right side up and then fold the ribbon in half and place on the middle of the right hand side with its raw edges against the raw edges of the fabric. Pin to secure. Place the 28 x 12 cm piece of fabric right side down on top of this and sew around to join leaving a 5 cm gap for turning.
Turn the right way and slip stitch close the gap.
Take the piece of felt and place in the middle of the inside of case, then sew down the middle of the piece of felt to secure.
Sew on the button.
Your needle case is now complete!
