I’ve still got some felt left over from the Felted Chair Covers, so I was looking for a fun, easy way to use some up. I ran across the idea of felted needle cases from Sue Bleiweiss, and I thought I’d do a simple version of that.
I cut the white felt (the cover) with a scallop-edged rotary cutter, about 3 X 4 inches. I cut the inner piece of felt – in this case hot pink – about 3 X 3 inches. I layered the small piece on top of the larger one, folded it in half, and stuck a pin in it to keep it together. Then I sewed from the outside on the left, making the “binding.” (I used a decorative stitch for this. Why not?) I added some little hearts on the outside, hand-stitched a little accent with embroidery floss, and added a button trim.
I got 11 of these whipped up in a morning, and will be sending them out as RAKs… Random Acts of Kindess… to my ClothPaperStudio Yahoo Group sisters. Fun to give, easy to do, and uses up some of that stash!
Why not whip up a few yourself, add a few safety pins and loaded needles, and
- gift your kid’s teachers
- share with your mom, auntie, sister, neighbor
- tuck them away for holiday gifts
- stick one in your purse- you know you need one!
Get inspired by these- much cuter and more elaborate than mine.
