I love quick projects that are useful and recently I sewed this needle book. I had just purchased a new pack of quilters needles and opened the corner carefully when I took one out. I used some tape and thought it would be enough to hold those thin needles in once they were stored in my sewing kit. Not enough I found out quickly because when I moved the kit, carried it or tried to open it, there were needles floating around. Very unsafe. So I put everything down and immediately sewed this project. I am so glad I did because it has definitely given my needles a stable soft place to wait until I need them.
Look at that tape. I don't know what I was thinking except maybe I was in a rush to work on something else. You know that is not going to last very long is it? I love how the needles are lined up in a row and I can wrap my thread around them so I have a threaded needle ready to go.
Here it is in my sewing kit. I carry this to my guild meetings so I have everything I need. Having your own sewing needles is a good idea if you are going to be sewing in a communal setting for sanitary reasons. Have I convinced you to make your own needlebook yet? How about making some for your sewing friends? All it takes is a piece of flannel and batting and a small length of elastic. A cute button is the final finish.
I filmed a video you can watch also below. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
