Sewing Notions Case Photo Tutorial

 Stitch your favorite motif
I found mine here

 Cut mat board to fit the top of a small Embroidery Hoop

 Lace your finished piece around the mat board 
(I used a layer of batting between them so my top would be soft)

 This is the top of the needle case

 Cut a second round piece of mat board to make the back for your stitched piece & lace your favorite fabric around it

Make two more of these to make the bottom of the needle case 
You need two embroidery hoops to make a needle case .. Use a hinge to connect them ...

Glue the two covered mat boards wrong sides together (stitched piece on top) & then glue that to the top of your embroidery hoop
Are you getting the idea? ...

Embellish as desired. I used ric rac around the inside edge of my case ...

I think I will add cording around the top but I wanted you to see how I placed my pieces together

Fill with your favorite stitching goodies & enjoy!
Happy Stitching
