All seams are ¼” unless otherwise specified.

Sew the Pins and Needles Case

  1. Fold one of the fabric rectangles in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, as illustrated below. Position the two 2” applique hearts on the fold, slightly off centre towards the fold to account for the seam allowance.

Press hearts in place. Place tearaway on wrong side of fabric, underneath hearts, making sure the area behind the hearts is covered completely. Applique as desired.

  1. Place the appliqued front of the case on top of the batting. Find the centres of the sides and baste the ribbons with an 1/8” seam allowance to hold them in place. See illustration below.
