Sew Stitchy Pie needle case

My Auntie is currently taking her City and Guilds in Patchwork and Quilting so I thought a Stitchy Pie needle case would make a perfect present to help keep her needles organised.

I sat out in the garden and added some little bits of embroidery to the fabric:

The outer print and the binding are both Sew Stitchy by Aneela Hoey, which I bought from Pin It and Stitch.

I added a cute heart Kam snap and a row of hand quilting using Aurifil 12 weight thread #2277.

My Auntie has space above the needles to write on what the needles are for or the size. I organise mine by use but she may prefer something different so I left it blank.

And it folds up neatly so she can easily take it along to her classes! This gift was on my Finish-A-Long list so I can check it off and send it out  ✓

It is so exciting to see people using my pattern and there are some super versions I would like to share with you...

Sarah Fielke made a gorgeous, rainbow dresden Stitchy Pie. The dots, gingham and button fabric are a winning combination!

Mrs Moog has made a couple, very different from each other but equally striking! One with cool Graffiti quilting, the other has perfect pops of pink and hand stitching:

Next some bright and really beautiful embroidery on this fancy version by nachtpedalquilts

Last but certainly not least, we have a lot more from roundrabbit. Nancy made a lovely stack of Stitchy Pies and has them for sale in the Round Rabbit shop - along with other handmade goods, including beautiful glazed buttons!
