I mentioned the other day how I was inspired to get my sewing box out after a visit to Cath Kidston in Piccadilly. I really loved the felt rainbow needle case and pincushion I saw but wanted to make my own version. It took me a while but here’s my finished Cath Kidston inspired rainbow needle case.
I love working with felt and chose a selection of colours from my stash box.
I drew a rainbow on a piece of paper and used it as a guide, cutting out each arc then pinning it to a larger piece of red felt.
I added two white fluffy clouds to cover the base of the rainbow which was a little uneven. I stitched my finished rainbow onto a larger piece of red felt (you can tell I was totally winging this little make), which I folded in half. I placed a white piece of felt inside to hold the needles, and hand stitched along the fold to keep the layers in place.
