Quilted Hankie Case

Quilted Hankie Case

It’s always a good idea to have a paper tissue handy. I keep some in almost every room, as well as in my handbag and in the car. In an apartment, those little white helpers can easily hide in boxes that are around for decorative purposes anyway, but for the pack in your handbag you'd need an appropriate case. One that's individual, and pretty enough to be shown off - like this one ...

Quilted Hankie Case

Inspired by OhFransson, I originally wanted to try out freemotion quilting. But, since I hate to produce for the wastebin, I thought of making something useful out of the sample pieces, so this little project came about.

You’ll need:

  • Some white cotton fabric,
  • some batting,
  • red, blue, and green sewing thread,
  • white serger thread,
  • red, pink, yellow, and green embroidery thread,
  • 1 toggle button.

This is how it's done:

Cut out the 3 little quilt tops according to the pattern, put it onto the batting and the backing fabric. Allow for a generous overlap, because during the quilting process the layers tend to slide. Although, with pieces as small as these the excess may well be less than shown in the foto.

Quilted pieces including some overlapQuilted pieces with overlap cut off

Quilt the pieces using differently colored threads, one piece a color. When you’re done, cut off the excess fabric.

Sewn up darts on the bottom of the sheath

Now sew up the darts and combine the 2 main parts. These seams will not be processed any further, so we need to serge them to prevent fraying. The remaining edges, however, will be embroidered and therefore need no serging. After serging turn the body inside out.

Blanket stitch step 1Blanket stitch step 2

The embroidery will be done with blanket stitches. Push the needle up from the bottom. Create a loop by threading the needle through the last stitch, then pull the thread tight softly. The loops of the consecutive stitches will result in a line on top of the border.

Embroidered edges in different colors

The flap gets a green border on 3 sides, the fourth one will be pink. The edge of the sheath body will be done in 2 colors as well, this time the colors being red and yellow.

Embroidered edges in different colors

As soon as all edges are embroidered, attach the flap. Use hidden stitches and white sewing thread on the inside of the flap so that the stitches won’t be detected on the outside.

Attaching the flap

At last we need something to fasten the flap. A loop matches the design best,, and, wonder of wonders, I even found the perfect toggle button in the depth of my drawer!

Fastening loop

For the loop, fold in the fabric along both long edges, like in a bias tape. Stitch the sides together with hem stitches. Place the ends next to each other. Embroider them with blanket stitches and attach them with some backstitches to the inner side of the flap. Make sure the stitches are not visible on the outside!

Finished case with open flap

Finally sew on the toggle – and there you are! Enjoy!
