Keepsake Needle Case
Beginner | 18 min 40 sec
In this short-and-sweet class, Rebecca Ringquist shares instructions for making a vintage-inspired needle case. The only materials needed are a bit of cotton, felt, and pretty ribbon, and very basic machine-sewing skills are required. The finished case is perfect for organizing embroidery needles, and the wool felt will keep them nice and sharp for future crafting.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • PDF Template
  • Scrap piece of cotton larger than your template
  • Scrap piece of 100% wool felt larger than your template
  • 12" length of vintage or new embroidered ribbon
  • Vintage clothing label (optional)
  • Disappearing ink pen (Rebecca uses Frixion ink pens)
  • Fabric shears
  • Pinking shears
  • Straight pins
  • Sewing machine and sewing machine thread
Learn how to:
  • Backstitch
  • Machine-sew a 1/4” seam
  • Trim a seam with pinking shears

What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow class on how to make a keepsake needle case
  • HD video lesson you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Detailed supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by expert instructor and artist Rebecca Ringquist
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students

Great video! So useful and sweet to have hanging in my workspace! Love the idea of using vintage materials with possible sentimental value as well!
