This week at Start, we made felt needle cases. The project was supposed to have lasted two weeks but what can I say, I’m a quick study. 😀
I did plan to have more embroidery on the front of my case, but once I found this gorgeous butterfly applique, I changed my mind. I think anything more would have distracted from its beauty.
The interior felt matches the butterfly’s colour and then I found a length of decorated netting trim. The dark blue flowers are a close match to the cover, and the trim ties into the natural theme. I finished the case at home and managed to find embroidery thread in my tiny stash that was close to the gold edging on the butterfly.
Overall, it’s a simple but effective design, even if I do say so myself.
