"In Love" pincushion and needle case

Today I am very happy to present the "In Love" pincushion tutorial over at Riley Blake - Cutting Corners blog (click here), as part of the Pincushion Club series.

If you would like to download the printable tutorial please visit the blog post over at Riley Blake following the image below. It will also be available tomorrow from my tutorial page (follow the link at the top of the blog).


RBD Pincushion Club

In order to celebrate my first ever feature, I decided to make the matching needle case to go with the pincushion... and voilà the finished set. I used fabrics from The sweetest thing collection from Riley Blake (you can see the whole collection here)

I did a lot of research on-line to come up with a needle case that I loved. I wanted to feature my heart paper pieced pattern but also have a great design for the case itself. I got inspired by this tutorial from Sew She Sews. However I made quite a bit of redesigning to come up with my needle case. You can check out my board on Pinterest for more links to amazing needle cases.

The needle case is very firm, as it has a few layers of fabric/batting. It has a big pocket all along the interior very handy for scissors and bigger tools, and a small pocket on one side. It has plenty of space for all the needles.

After I finished I gave it a try while I was making a few embroidery projects I have been working on lately, I ended up using the small pocket for my embroidery silks, and catching the threads I was working on between the two layers of felt. The back pocket was used for storing the embroidery pieces that I have finished.

I have made the pattern for the needle case available here

I would love to hear your thoughts on the projects. And if you decide to make it, please do send pictures of your end results!
