DIY Felt Fruit Needle Case

diy needle case 1

Today's idea was inspired by this Pinterest image which after completing this project I found out was originally from The Purl Bee. The post there shows how to make these little felt citrus slices to use as coasters however I ran with the fun fruit idea I'd seen in the Pinterest image and made little pouches/needle cases instead. Here's the step-by-step...

You will need: white felt, coloured felt, scissors, thread and a needle + some circular things to draw around. Alternatively the post over at The Purl Bee has a great printable template - if only I'd known!

1. First cut your four felt circles - 2 large coloured, 1 slightly smaller white, and 1 even smaller coloured

2. Take the smallest circle and cut into quarters. Then take each of those and cut into two pieces - it's best to do this unevenly

3. To create the 'pips' in the design take a few of the small triangle sections, fold them in half and carefully snip a small triangle out of the felt - just like if you were making paper snowflakes!

4. Arrange the triangles on the white circle and use a simple running stitch to secure them all in place

5. Then, again using a running stitch, sew the white circle onto one of the bigger coloured ones

6. The final step is to add on the little pocket. Cut approx. a third off of your second large coloured circle, stitch this onto the back and you're done!
