Everyone needs a Needle Book! It keeps your needles, pins, etc, in one easy to find place. So why not make a really adorable one for yourself, and then make some for gifts or to sell in limited amounts? You can with this instant download pattern. This is a quick and easy but also long on cuteness needle book pattern. This goes together with a hand embroidery needle, some floss, four colors of felt, a couple of buttons and scissors. This is done quickly, but it is a great deal of fun to embroider the felt as well.
Pattern has full pattern pieces to print and cut out. There is a discussion about types of felt, illustrations on stitches you will use in the project, accompanied by step-by-step instructions. You will find the color photos and color diagrams helpful in completing your project.
Completed book measures 3" x 6" open, and 3" x 3" when folded. Four interior pages, a pocket, and cute embroidered flowers on the outside make this a very satisfying project.
One of the best parts: you will have your hand sewing needles in one place when you need to find one. You can keep thread samples in the pocket and also straight pins or safety pins can be attached to the inside pages of the book. Personalize your book by adding your name, or just by choosing favorite colors.
I love to make things that I like to use, so I have a wide variety of patterns as a result of that. I have sewn for more years than I care to admit to...let's just say, for decades. I enjoy making patterns and sharing them with others. I try very hard to make them as easy to understand as I can. It is my hope that this is a way of helping others make things they like to use too.
