Needlecases

Hi all,

I've a wee bit more sewing for your today which I'm linking to Handmade Monday.

I've been asked to take a table at the local school's Summer Fayre which is at the end of May.  After the Christmas Fayres I did, I've virtually no stock left, so yesterday afternoon I rustled up a couple of needlecases ...




They're very easy to make.  All you need is a couple pieces of fabric (about 7.5" x 5")which you sew round (right sides together), leaving a gap for turning.  I then just insert a piece of wadding before top stitching all around, which closes up the opening.  Attach a couple of pieces of felt to the inside by stitching down the centre.  You can add a hoop and button or some ribbon for fastening or to simplify it even further, you could leave it without a fastening, as long as you use some pretty fabric I think they look good.

Okay that's me for today - short and sweet.  It's a lovely day here today so I'm away to sit outide for a wee while with a cuppa.

Thanks for popping in

Suze xx

They may be easy for you but they look difficult to me and am not surprised that you are out of stock. The fabric is so pretty you really are a clever wee lass.
