Pattern Description:

THIS LISTING IS FOR THE DIGITAL PATTERN ONLY, not a finished needle book or a kit.

Make colorful, unique and practical needle books to organize all your sewing needles and as unique handmade gifts! The Flora Needle Book is my own design. This 12-page PDF pattern shows you how to make 2.5 x 3 inch wool felt needle books that feature:

-Colorful embroidered floral applique
-Grosgrain ribbon spine
-Handy hanging loop
-Button/string closure
-Four felt pages for needles and pins
-A light coating of stiffener for durability

Included in this original pattern are actual sized pattern pieces with no overlapping, detailed step-by-step instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and sample photos.

No worries about the small scale! I've included many tips and tricks to make construction easy as well as embroidery how-tos.

It is instantly downloadable in a handy PDF format for 8.5 x 11 letter sized paper, so you can print the pattern from your regular printer at home on standard paper or card stock, as many times as you need for personal use.
