TASTER: Liberty Needlecase with Sallieann Harrison
FREE Tasters (Quilting) • Educational, G, 09-Apr-2021
Sallieann has developed this technique for use with the sewing machine. You could do some of it by hand if you wanted. Create the folded texture by having strips of fabric cut on the bias, so that they stretch nicely for you.
You can create added interest by using vinyl instead of fabric. This will give a see through look, rather like a window, but you don't lose any of the contents if you are making a small bag.
Sallieann started by using up lots of scraps to create her piece of fabric, making it a great scrap buster too.
If you don't have a stiletto to help you, you could try using your unpicker. It will keep your fingers safe.
Here is a link to the supplier of the vinyl that Sallieann used.
The Liberty Needlecase pattern is available from Sallieann’s website as an instant download. Click here to find more information.

If you are struggling with finding the right stitch for your machine, you could find a little help from Dawn Cameron-Dick with her invisible machine applique workshop, click here to watch.
