Sew Fancy


Do you remember when I was working on this sewing needle case?  Well, I finished it!

I’m so pleased with the way this turned out that I’m going to write up some instructions in case you would like to make one too.  I will try to get that finished next week.


When we last talked, I had just completed the embroidery.  I made embroidered labels for the different types of needles (tapestry, embroidery, etc.) so that everything would stay organized.  I used this post on hand sewing needles at Craft Stylish as my guide.


I added two pockets — one for a pair of small sewing scissors and a second smaller pocket for some needle threaders.  I didn’t want the scissors to slice through the felt, so I took the plastic packaging the scissors came in to make a shield for the pocket.  The plastic protector slips right in and holds the scissors in place.


For some reason, it’s very satisfying seeing all of the needles lined up like this and arranged by type.

I went with a sparkly button for the front and now I feel so much more glamorous when I’m sewing.  It could almost pass for a clutch…


I have another big project that I want to tell you about tomorrow.  I’m pretty excited about this one… so stay tuned!

  1. i absolutely love this! such a clever way of sorting all those pesky little needles (much better than the arm of the couch, which is where a lot of mine end up!)

  2. What a great idea!!! So much cuter than my lil tomato needle holder that ends up eating my small needles.

  3. A great sewing and needle case. I love having these…
