You'll need a piece of soft leatherette or polyester suede of about 10" x 18" for easier hooping, a 5" x 15" piece of soft fabric for lining, cut-away iron-on stabilizer, embroidery threads, sewing uphostery threads, embroidery needle #80/12 and sewing topstitch needle #90/14.

Embroidery:

Out of the fabric for the glasscase's top, cut a piece of about 10" x 18". Stabilize the piece with cut-away iron-on stabilizer. On the back of the stabilizer, mark the center of the piece and draw a horizontal line through the center. The bottom of the glasscase will be on this line.

Embroider the small motifs from the Folk Style Decorative Motif Set positioning them about 1 1/2" from the drawn line.
