Make a needle case

    1 Download and print the templates. Cut the shapes from both patterned cotton and coordinating coloured felt. Place right sides together and stitch around the edges, leaving a 3cm gap in one straight side. Clip the corners and turn out.

    2 Flatten the cross shape and sew small running stitches around the outside with two strands of contrasting thread, closing the turning gap as you do so. Cut felt, 6cm square, and place in the centre of the case on the felt side. Sew to the lining with running stitch down one side.

    3 Fold in the side tabs and the top and bottom tabs, then press. Sew a button to the centre edge of the top flap. Use two strands of embroidery thread to stitch several finger-sized loops in the centre edge of the opposite flap. Bind the loops together by sewing tiny blanket stitches into the loop.
