I’m always looking for better ways to store my crafting bits ‘n’ bobs. As my sewing needles and pins were scattered around in various places I wanted somewhere central to keep them and thought this would make a quick and simple project.
The fabric is from the House to Home collection by Benartex and was bought from ‘Beloved Fabrics’ on ebay. I haven’t done any applique for a long while and wanted to try adding some to the front, but needed to keep it simple as the fabric itself is quite busy. I opted for felt as it is easy to work with and doesn’t fray.
I added a layer of fleece in between the layers of fabric to give the needle case some structure.
The finishing touch was to add a brightly coloured piece of felt inside to hold the needles.
