When I finished up my recent project (the orange/red/yellow flower embellishment thingy from my last post), I needed a place to put my needle. The pincushion is out of the question, because LITTLE FINGERS in my house like to push needles way down into the pincushion, never to be found again. I often go into my sewing room to find all the pins in my pincushion arranged in some clever way, or in a pattern, or ALL pushed down...who needs Toys R Us? I think I'll just get the kids a pack of pins this Christmas.
So I made this little needle book out of felt and covered it with some scrap fabric - which was actually a cloth napkin from the Dollar Tree - isn't it cute?
