Felt Needle Case for Waltzing Mouse Stamps Blog Party

ETA: I’m sorry the pics are so dark and yellow. I’d retake them but I already mailed it away. Believe it or not, I already lightened and colour corrected them, apparently just not enough. My apologies! I decided to think outside the box for this challenge. We are to use Felt or Cozy Fabrics as our theme. I made a needle case for a swap on Swap-Bot and it turned out perfect for this challenge!

The case is made of felt except for the front panel. You can just see the very tip of the ribbon I tied into a bow threaded through a hole in each page and tied in the back.

Here you can see the layers I used to make the case.

Onto each page I glued a different white lace. They look pretty right?

Here you can see the bow that ties it all together. You can’t see the ribbon on the front because it is under the label. I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog party! If you like my project, I hope you will visit again. I have subscription thingies on my sidebar!

  1. What a fantastic idea for this challenge! Love that it is useful as well as beautiful. The shape & colors are wonderful and I adore the lace trim!


  2. Oh this is so sweet! It looks like a little antique! I have never heard of a needle case (shows you how much I sew, hee) but this is such a great idea. I love the little bits of lace and the sweet colors of the felt. A cozy and charming project, for sure!


  3. Wow, this is so beautiful and elegant! Love how you thought outside the box, my brain just does not always work that way. The lace and all of the details are all so soft and sweet, just beautiful.


  4. This is so pretty – it is always a pleasure to have something that is beautiful to look at and functional at the same time. The recipient will think of you every time they reach for it!


  5. This is just the best idea for a gift project. I love your needle case. Your pictures are just fine, but I know what you mean sometimes in person they are just so much better. This is a wonderful case!
