Stitchy Pie Watermelon



This is the watermelon version of my Stitchy Pie needle case. It is the most useful needle case, it helps me organise all my hand sewing needles in a cute way and is perfect for using up scraps!


I teach this as a class but am contemplating making the pattern available for sale, let me know in a comment if you would be interested. **UPDATE! The pattern is now available to buy, click here or visit my Etsy shop.


I did some of the same stitches as the original, added some new ones and a few rows of hand quilting. I also used a popper because I think that is easier to open (the magnet was too strong, a weak one would work though).


Fabrics used are:
inner - Mesh Joy, Gossamer by Sharon Holland

Here's how it looks in motion...

  12. It looks awesome and I love the watermelon look - so cute! If it were available RIGHT NOW I'd definitely buy it because I'm working on stuff for a swap and it'd be a great addition. And if it were available later, I might still buy it because it's pretty awesome.

  19. I love the way all the needles are tucked safely away, with all the points in the the centre! I often get 'pricked' when using a regular needle book!

  22. Very clever concept. My needles are all thrown together in a little tin. I can see the merit in your approach =)
