After the appliqué is all done I cut the background down to a 4 ½” x 8 ½” rectangle.
Place this right side up on a piece of batting and trim the batting to the same size as the background.
Place another 4 ½” x 8 ½” piece of background fabric on top of this sandwich right sides together with the appliquéd piece.
Sew ¼” ALL the way around.
Fold this in half to find the center.
Make a small cut with a seam ripper in the center of the fabric. Be really careful to only go through one layers of fabric.
Carefully cut a slit along the center, starting and stopping ½” from the stitching.
Turn the whole unit inside out through this slit and press.
Now take your 1” x 3 ½” piece of fabric and apply some fusible web to it. I’m using Steam-a-Seam 2.
Center this over the slit and press.
Cut a piece of felt 3 ¼” x 7”. I’m using my Olfa pinking rotary cutter for this.
Center this piece of felt on the inside and stitch down the center.
Now you have the cutest little needle case to keep you nice and tidy.
Have a lovely weekend.
