After so many good ideas you gave to me the other day, I have put myself down to work and I started with Rocío‘s proposal. A needle case to store crochet hooks, for me it’s great so I can take the needles with me this holidays and I can continue with #mymisioreloaded from Wasel Wasel!
I used a limited edition thick fabric from Ikea designed by illustrator and designer Tina Backman, and cotton ribbon.
To make the base of the case we must cut two rectangles of 39 cm x 45 cm. A rectangle of 39 cm x 28 cm for one of the pockets and a trapezoid-shaped piece of 39 cm width, 19 cm higher high and 8 cm lower high.
Cut cotton tape to cover the edges of the pockets. Iron everything, hold with pins and sew with the sewing machine.
Then hold the pockets to one of the rectangles of the cover’s base aligning all parts to the bottom.
We can put into the pockets the needles and the objects that we want to save there to delimit the seams inside pockets. Make the seams that you want, all parallel and perpendicular to the bottom of the case.
In the other rectangle of the base sew another cotton tape about 60 centimeters long, about 15 cm from the bottom and leaving a few centimeters of lateral distance.
The next step is to face both sides of the base and sew the edges leaving an opening of about 10 centimeters to turn it over.
Before we turn it over make a small cut in the corners so that the seams do not bulge out much.
Finally turn over the case and sew the opening we had left with hidden stitch.
