Label section
Ch 10
Row 1-3 HDC, CH 1 and turn.
Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew label to body of case.                



Sewing Section
The first thing you will want to do is embroider
the initials into the Label.

Attaching the label to the body of the case.
Sew your label on towards the side or the front of the case. Making sure that you sew your label on so that the edges are all secure.




Attaching your top to the body of the case

Flip both pieces inside out. Line up your 2 back seams.  Sew your 2 pieces together using the 5 stitches on both sides of the seam.  So that the back half of the top is attached to the body.

 










Weave in all your ends and turn it right side out again.  Also sew on your button at this point.


Using 2 toilet paper rolls to stabilize the case. Insert your first roll into the body of the case. The case will stretch a bit around the tube. Take the 2nd tube and cut it down size so that there is small tube section that will fit in the top of the case.




~Finish off and weave in your ends~

 







That’s it. You are all done. I hope you enjoy!!
