I don't know about you but I'm forever rummaging around trying to find a needle. So I've decided to make a needlecase, and stumbled upon this nifty tutorial.
Big thanks to Retro Fabulous for the step-by-step guide and showing me how it's done! Oh and this is one of zillions of craft how-tos that are gathered together by Totally Tutorials.
Even though I have zillions of needles around my house, they're surprisingly elusive when I need to find the right size for my cross stitch fabric. So I'm going to make the most of the long weekend ahead and start sewing up my very own needle case.
Retro Fabulous' needle case tutorial is the perfect excuse for me to use up my long-hoarded fabric quarters and will help me keep track of where my needles are in future. Now all I have to do is round up my needles from the various crafty nooks and crannies I've left them in around our flat! (my fiance is especially bemused when he finds them stuck in the side of our sofa).
