Needle Case Tutorial
|Handmade Needle Case|
|The inside of the needle case|
*Note* You could embroider a design on the main front fabric and pocket before you start layering the pieces to be sewn together. I did not however.*
I used a piece of felt for the inside piece to put the needles in.
See Step 7.
|The piping placement|
3. Place piping on main fabric layer with the bump where the cord or yarn is on the inside.
*Note* I made my own piping out of a 1 inch strip of fabric and yarn.

|Adding the batting|
|Pinning it all together|
|Added pocket for embroidery scissors.|
For the pocket, hem the top edge of the pocket piece. Then place it on the fabric where you want it and pin it on then stitch it.
* Note* I put mine in the back side of the felt.
|Adding the felt and marking sides for which kind of needles you want to put into the case.|
9. Then take a ribbon of your choosing and cut it into 2 pieces of equal length long enough to tie a bow. Stitch one side of the ribbon to the inside of the case at about the middle point on the front and back cover.
10. Close needle case by tying the ribbon into a bow.
