Annie Rolfe Needle Case Project

Friend Becca Babb-Brott recently took a trip–and she wanted a needle case that would fit inside the small, travel-sized bag she had just made to hold her current English Paper Piecing Project.

Since I am constantly juggling needles–and often have more than one loaded with different colored threads–I thought I’d make one too.

I used Annie Rolfe’s tutorial, which you can see below.

It’s simple:  a fun project with a fun and practical outcome–assuming you have the ingredients on hand.  Be sure to sew the snap on BEFORE putting in the insides–per instructions.  I used some temtex I had around instead of cardboard.  The cutting directions are on the right sidebar of the tutorial I think.  She tells you in the intro.

Here’s mine–from a beloved fabric.

The inside is already filled with needles and pins.

I want to make another one that will just hold two or three needles and fit into a small bag when I don’t need my bigger one.

The tutorial:
