Sewing needles are one of those tools that should be changed according to your project type or materials. My newest In The Hoop Needle Minder design will help you remember what kind of needle you have taken out of your machine for later use. I like to change my needles at the beginning of a new project and sometimes I am creating something with multiple fabric types. I might be doing embroidery first on a cotton fabric and then construction next on a denim. So the first needle could be taken out and placed in the Needle Minder while a new denim needle is being used. If you stay away from your crafting for a while and come back, you can quickly see what type and size needle you have placed in the Needle Minder.
The finished project is easily installed on your sewing machine using elastic and snaps. You only need to measure the distance around the open area and it can stay on the side of your machine or on the front depending on your preference.
The elastic lays flat and should not impede your sewing. It is easily removed and reinstalled though.
This would be a perfect stocking stuffer or gift for the sewing enthusiast in your life. They embroider quickly and require small pieces of fabric. Perfect for using up those remnants.
If you haven't used snaps before. this In The Hoop Needle Minder would be an excellent project to get some practice. In fact, I believe this would be an easy beginner embroidery design to learn sewing with fabrics, elastic, snaps, fiber fill and closing seams with a needle and thread.
There is always an occasion to add to your sewing studio tools. This In The Hoop Needle Minder should become a favorite once you use it. Your stitching friends will want one also so start working on those birthday and Mother's Day gifts. I have an instruction video you can watch below that shows how this project comes together. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
