Needle Books

Since I have been doing more hand work I thought it would be nice to have a little needle book instead of the scrap of flannel or felt that I had been using. I went online to get some ideas and found a pattern by the same woman who designed my felt Santa. Not as fiddly as the Santa to make, but still a fair amount of appliqué and embroidery

I made five, one for me and the rest for gifts.


The pattern calls for grosgrain ribbon for the book spine and I happened to have this cute polka dot ribbon in several colors left from another project. I used it on three of them. The others got a solid color.







It has four pages inside. I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

These are gorgeous. I'm not sure what grosgrain ribbon is so I will google it. I think this is a project that's right up my street! Which colour are you keeping?

I love pincushions and needle books. Yours are so sweet.

I should probably have one, I have a needle stuck into almost everyone of my balls or skeins of thread - that's a lot of needles! I guess I have always found it more convenient to have one with each thread, threaded and ready to go.
