My beloved needlecase
Here is the material you will need to finish your needlecase
A piece of fabric to make the inside of the needlecase (approx 20x30 cm)
A piece of thick paper or card for the template
A piece of thick fusible Vlieseline (I use the S520 quality) or any other material that can stiffen your needlecase
A piece of thin fleece
A piece of thick fleece
A repositionable glue spray
Thread and a sewing needle
Here’s what to prepare first.
Print the drawing of the needlecase (to be downloaded in the first post) on thick paper or even on a card and cut it out. This will be your template throughout the assembly.
Cut 2 pieces of Vliesline the size of the template.
Using the iron, fold the edge 1 cm inwards, along the Palestrina stitch and as precisely as possible.
Thoroughly mark the fold.
Lay the linings on the embroidered parts by holding them with a spray of repositionable glue and attach to each corner with a pin.
Assemble the 2 parts of the needlecase with a single overcast stitch with the same thread used for the Palestrina stitch.
