I did a lot of finishing work this weekend. This is the completed Needle Nook. Each canvas piece is sewn with 2 pieces of thin quilt batting in between the canvas and moire I used on the backs. Before stitching the final seam, plastic is inserted in them to stiffen the piece. The bottom is moire on the top and the bottom. After these three pieces are together, one must sew those three pieces together from point to point. Then, you take all the leftover Kreiniks and make the twisted cord. This is then stitched in place around the front and the back. The first picture is the front.
The next picture is the back.
Next, I have a photo looking down on the piece, so you can see the overall shape.
Last is a photo of what happens when you pinch the ends. This is what opens the case.
I also cut two pieces of felt and put them on the sides of the front and the back, so I can park needles in the felt versus the moire. The case is large enough to also carry a small pair of scissors. Even though DH says it looks like a football, I don't agree. It is a very beautiful piece. I hope you enjoyed watching it become an heirloom.
