Pins and Needles

For today’s tutorial we thought we would put together something useful to help keep all your pins and needles in the one place. It’s a pretty purse for holding them all together so they don’t go missing as they have a tendency to do in our experience. Now all you have to remember is where you keep the purse.

What you will need:

Some felt, we used about 50cm x 30cm but you can use far less if you decide to make a smaller purse.

Pretty fabric (25cm x 30cm, makes quite a large purse so if you only have a few needles you could reduce this to 15cm x 20cm or 10cm x 15cm)

Piece of ribbon (50cm)

Soft Card


Sewing Machine

Fabric glue

Step 1:

Press your fabric and felt and cut out a piece of fabric measuring 25cm x 30cm. Then cut a piece of card 1cm less than your piece of fabric on all sides.

Step 2:

Using fabric glue, stick down the corners of your fabric to the card. Then glue down all sides to the card.

Step 3:

Cut out a piece of felt about 0.5cm smaller than your piece of card on all sides. Glue this using fabric glue on all sides to your card and fabric piece.

Step 4:

Fold the entire piece in two to give a centre line, now cut out about 3 more pieces of felt each a smaller size than the one before and lie together on the main piece.

Step 5:

Using your sewing machine, sew along the centre line to join all the pieces together. Then again with your machine sew a piece of ribbon to the front of your purse.

Step 6:

Now place all your pins and needles inside.

Step 7:

Tie up your ribbon and your purse is ready to go.

Make sure to let us know how you get on if you try this one out.
