Mixed Media Needlecase

International Quilt Festival/Chicago

April 16-18, 2010
Donald E. Stephens Center, Rosemont, IL

Karol and I arrived & were greeted
by a friendly lady
giving away wrist bands
for FREE entry into the Festival


Among the quilts, lectures, shopping, shopping, shopping ...

were workshops scheduled each day.

Called Make it University!™ Chicago 2010

We tried our hand at
One-of-a Kind Needlecase
taught by
Kristen Rodriguez
Fiber on a Whim

post from her blog

My kit theme was PLAY

Inside our kits were a cloth for texture, bits of scrapbook papers, bits of paper to embellish (ie ticket, map, music, dictionary page), button, and fiber (+needle)

We received instructions for placing our paper pieces
on the needlebook cover

having the paper pieces stick on the fabric using a product called
Misty Fuse

lastly, we embellished with perle cotton

Final touches: sewing on the button, a tie, and the pages inside

Whole Needlecase (outside)

Marjorie took a different class,
Kelli Perkins - cartoon fabric paper collage pins

Wow, what a fun project! It turned out great! I like all the embellishments and the effect of the netting over the top.
