I made a super easy needlecase for my lovely friend Nadine, and filmed the process to show you how I did it! I talked about the original project in a previous post. This is the step-by-step tutorial as shown on this video on my YouTube channel. For details of the giveaway, head on over the video to find out how to win the “sew” needlecase.
(This giveaway will close on the 30th of November, 2016.)
Easy Needlecase Tutorial
Before you start, choose the shape you would like your needlecase to be – I chose a hexagon. You are also going to do some very simple embroidery, stitching a word on the contrasting fabric. Choose that word now! I usually use names, but made this one a little more generic for the giveaway.
After you’ve assembled your equipment, you’re ready to go! I used a sewing machine as I had one – if you don’t, you can easily do these bits by hand.
From this point on, your sewing will be visible. Be as neat as you can!
I’ve been finding these needlecases really great, quick presents for friends who deserve a special something, and perhaps don’t have a basic sewing kit. Give it to them with some thread, pins and scissors, and you’ve set them up. Everytime they sew a button on they’ll think of you! WHAT a gift.
I really hope you find this useful – if you make one, I’d love to know! All my social media bits are linked on the right.
