Sewing Project: Needle Book

I didn’t get to bed until almost one o’clock in the morning, because this idea of a needle book kept spinning in my mind. My mother had one, and I loved it. It’s a very functional and handy thing for sewers. I just had to try making one. I looked through my supplies and found some felt pieces, beads, and embroidery floss. That’s all that was needed. Here is the result:

  1. What a lovely idea – a knitting book. I must make one too. It’s such a good way to keep needles organized in a pretty package. Thank you for following my blog. I’ll visit yours often.

  3. How neat is your blanket stitch 🙂
    I have a needle book made by MIL which is so handy but not quite so pretty as yours andelieya

  4. So charming, and what a pretty, upbeat design – I love that you put this together with what was on hand, and it’s especially fun for me to see because I inherited one from my mother after she died – or shall I say, I made sure I brought it home! Whenever I use it, it brings a smile. I don’t know if you have kids (yet?) but be sure to save things like this for them! My mother made hers from felt too, with needlepoint – I just have to show it to you – so go to my Flickr page, where I’ve uploaded phone pics I just took of it – http://www.flickr.com/photos/lynnwohlers/

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I am not a good seamstress, but I was lucky enough to learn some basic sewing skills in school. 🙂 However, we can explore sewing or anything else at any time in our lives. It’s so nice to always learn new things that interest us. It spices up life.

andelieya values and appreciates all of your comments, critiques, thoughts, and ideas!
