Pattern not commercially available
Type of item: Functional
Quilting cotton, adhesive-backed felt, plain acrylic felt, satin rattail cord.
What was your inspiration?
I needed somewhere to keep my needles well-organised, and it provided a nice little exercise in designing and piecing with McDowell's freezer paper method. Once I got started I couldn't stop!
I used the pattern twice and made two needle cases, so this shows the outside of the one I kept, and the inside of the one I gave to a friend, marked up with different needle types and sizes.
What are you most proud of?
Surviving hand-sewing through the adhesive-backed felt. Don't go there.
You can see how this project looked while I was still selecting the fabrics in the third photo.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Look through your needles, see how many categories they fall into, and then decide how big to make the needle case.
Don't go for adhesive-backed felt!
