Default Needle case simplified

I thought there was a way to do the needle case without turning and just pinked edges. If you like how it looks, this is how I did it.[ATTACH=CONFIG]586771[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH=CONFIG]586773[/ATTACH]I put my fabric right sides out and traced the outline for the case. I used my 1/4 inch foot to top stitch 1/4 inch in from the outline. I also cut my yellow felt out.

Since I had problems with the hook Velcro, I decided to put a buttonhole. If you would rather do Velcro you can. I stitched the buttonhole before using my scissors to cut out the shape slightly beyond my chalk mark. I did this because I wanted to fold up the shape and then pink the edges all at once. I did have to [ATTACH=CONFIG]586774[/ATTACH]finish the pink edges in the center after it was folded out.

I centered my felt and marked the intersections with my Frixion pen and stitched the fold lines. I then folded and ironed it into shape. When I was satisfied with the folds, I put in a pin to hold it and pinked the outer edges. I opened it up to finish the edges that are hidden when folded. Be careful [ATTACH=CONFIG]586775[/ATTACH] when pinking that you do not cut any of your top stitching.

Sew on you button and it is done.
Important Note:if you decide to do Velcro, the Velcro is sewn on BEFORE you sew on the felt.

I might be a little dense, but do you need a button and a button hole if you have velcro?

These are just way too cute and I have everything on hand. Could you use a nice thick flannel instead of the felt?
