Hello........ today I thought I'd share this needle case with you. It's a post that has been sitting in my drafts folder for a while now waiting to be written up, so I decided it would be perfect for a Stitching Sunday post with Chrissie and Nicole's KCCo so why not have a look at what everyone else has been making
I made this needle case in January as a birthday gift for a friend of mine.
First I cut out a rectangle of green felt, I guess it's kind of wallet size ( really should have written the measurements down !!)
Then I cut out a little felt bird and added a fabric wing and button eye. This little birdie might look familiar as I'm using the same paper template I made for my Birdie cards and my Birdie Bunting (which is a very ongoing WIP.)
Any road I stitched my birdie onto the front of the needle case.
Then with pinking shears I cut out two slightly smaller pieces of cream felt for the pages of the needle book
I also cut out a piece of felt to form a little pocket at the front of the book
Which I pinned in place then stitched with a blanket stitch, as I stitched all around the edge of the book.
Then using a running stitch I stitched the pages into the book
my cute little birdie needle book was complete.
The only thing is, now I'm very tempted to make me one of these little case too.
