Sew Hip and Recycled Needle Case

I really enjoy getting the Sew Hip magazine, I love how it is great for all levels and is not crammed full of clothes only, and you get a pattern sheet for all of the makes inside. If you don't already get it, it is well worth a look it is published monthly by Kalmedia and is £3.99.

In the July magazine there was a pattern and instructions to make this little origami needle case.

I cut up the fabric I had left over from a Boden top I bought from a charity shop a while back to make these cases.

The pattern is provided for these, I traced it onto greaseproof paper so that I didn't have to spoil the pattern.


Here they are almost done.

And voila, with felt insides and a little embellishment to the front, my little origami needle cases.



They were really quick and easy to make so I make a few whilst the iron was out!

They are lovely Kandi and thanks for the tip re Sew Hip. I was getting Sew for a while but thought it was pretty poor TBH. Will try this one instead I think. - PootleFlump x

Lovely! I've brought that mag before but it just sits on the side, never get around to making anything! :)

It's cute. But do people actually use needle cases?

Kandi said...

Jane, I do! I love them, I have one in my sewing box and one that lives with my sewing machine and one for my sewing tin that travels with me.

I'd never have thought to cut up fabric with such a big print into such small pieces but it looks really effective! :)
