I have seen some wonderful needle books out in The Interwebs and have become very jealous of them. I want one!
My needle storage up to this point has been super unorganized and it is difficult to find needles that I know I have. But, oh, wouldn’t it be so wonderful to have them all in one place! Organized, labeled, neatly sitting there in rows upon rows of beautiful needles – ready to create amazing things!
So, off I went to figure out what I wanted my needle book to look like. I saw cross stitched ones, patchwork ones, felt ones, fabric ones, large ones, small ones, some that fold, some that roll, ribbon closures, button closures – boy, the list goes on and on! There are endless possibilities. But, what do I want?
This one is from Domestic Doozie. I really like this one. She has a great tutorial (which I plan to use with a some slight modifications).
Love, Love, Love the pocket!
These are some other cool ideas for embellishing the pages.
Here is what I decided on:
- I want a printed fabric cover – maybe with some beading.
- I want it big enough to hold lots of needles, but not too big to carry around in my project box.
- I’m thinking embroidered labels – maybe ribbon.
- I want a button closure.
- I want some lace accents or maybe some ric rac. Just for smiles.
Now, off to dig through my stash to find a beautiful fabric to add some beading to. I’m sure I have something that will work.
