Today’s project was another pattern out of my Cath Kidston Sew! book – a lovely little needle case. I’ve started to discover that sewing needles don’t like to stay in the tray I keep them in, and tend to embed themselves in the carpet instead; not the best place to store them when there are cats roaming the house.
This pattern was very quick and easy to do. The main case and closing tab are some floral cotton folded around pieces of cardboard. I attached a press stud for the closure. Inside are 3 pieces of felt in contrasting colours, which I simply stitched down the middle with a running stitch and then (ahem) stuck into the case with double sided tape. The pattern called for bondaweb but I’ve yet to purchase any! The overall result still looks cute though, no?
