Do you think seven yards of fabric is enough to make a needle case? Maybe a bit too much? When I saw the needle case tutorial on Kaaren's blog, I was instantly attracted to it because she used fabric from a reproduction line of coverlet fabrics. A light bulb went off. I have some of that fabric, don't I? I checked my stash and found Coverlet fabric but not what she used for the outer part of the needle case. Then I remember that a local quilt shop had some Coverlet fabric. A trip to the shop netted me a piece but not that elusive outer fabric. Shop online was the next alternative. Minimum purchase was 1/2 yard and it was on sale. I love the houses & birds on the fabric. Maybe a yard would be good. Then I realized I didn't have co-ordinates for the inside, so more shopping. But which fabrics to choose? It's on sale. Buy a bit of this and that. Well, I ended up with a total of seven yards for my needle case. I must have lots of needles to put in it! Anyhow, here is the case. I will put the rest of the fabric towards other projects......someday.
A peek inside the case. I ended up using a red fabric that was not in the seven yards I purchased and used it for one of the pockets and the binding.
