Sewing Room SewAlong….Needlecase

I can't believe August is here !!

Where did the summer go ??

Actually when is the summer coming ???

Did I sleep through it and miss it ??

Maybe it will come today ?? In the meantime we can sew !

This months SAL project is an easy quick one.  Everyone can put down their knitting needles for an hour and make this project…yes, you do need one !

A girls can never have to many Needle cases!!

Here come this months links …..

This is one of my favorite Needlecase patterns by Khris at Sew prim khris



I made mine a little different then the tutorial…I used felt for the whole inside ( no separate pocket) and I trimmed it with lace to make it look pretty.

I then printed needle types labels and stuck them to each section…now I have every needle at hand.

    My Favorites: Nr. 1 an d 2 in your list, and Sulky dear, where do you find all this needful things.
    Oh, it is a film title...horror...

    Big Hug for Max again :O)))
    Have a happy day,

  3. Hallo Liz,
    ich habe nun das Februar-Projekt vollendet, du kannst es auf meinem Blog sehen.
    Für das Nadelkissen kann ich mich ja später noch entscheiden, mir gefällt die Tomate sehr gut. Du hast ja wieder so fleißig Muster zusammengetragen!

  4. I have so enjoyed looking at all the needle case ideas. I will definitely be giving Through the Needle a good look. I think the little felt ones at the end look so cute but I think my favorite is the strawberry dipped in chocolate. Thanks for all the links .

  5. Dear Liz,
    I really have enough needlecases. This was my opinion until now. And now I think: who said I have enough...forgotten. Such lovely, inspiring links. Thank you...and until soon.

  6. You have done your homework! This is the most wonderful display of needlecases in one place...I have never made one...yet! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Great idea to list all these different (and cute I might add) needle cases.I have been selling a sewing machine needle case in my local community for the past seven years. I call it a "Needle Nannie”. I’ve just published a kit for making these yourself. Of course, if you don’t want to make one, you can buy them already made up. It’s available on Etsy.

    I hope your blog readers find this useful.
