This was a school project. I'm in my first year of fashion and we had to make needle cases for our sewing class. The materials that were provided were embroidery floss and synthetic felt. Yuck. I hate synthetic felt. I decided to make mine out of my own scrap fabric instead. Here is the sketch I drew.
I used black linen. We were supposed to attach some design to the cover with a blanket stitch, so I made an embroidered label that said "needles".
I went over the lines with a chain stitch in silver thread. I had considered gold thread, to match my old sewing machine, but I prefer silver with black.
|The beginning of the "N". The chalk lines kept wearing off and I had to constantly re-draw them.|
The edges of the pages are raw. I doubt a blanket stitch would work on them and they don't seem to be in any great danger of unraveling.
I populated the finished case with needles.
I think that I should have put some kind of stiffening in the cover. It gets a bit scrunched around the edges when I carry it in my embroidery bag.

Here is the title page I made for the hand stitches section of my sewing fundamentals binder.
