>… I love handiwork! I love how portable it is, and I love the fact that I can both be productive and spend the day on the couch watching TV.
To make my handiwork a bit more portable, I made this little needle book. I’d been wanting to make one for a while. At the November Austin Modern Quilt Guild meeting, I saw one that our secretary, Mitzi, had made, and I knew I had to make one for myself!
How cute is that? I seriously couldn’t stop looking at it after I finished it. I can’t take credit for the design, though. I adapted it from an embroidery design I found after searching “free embroidery pattern” on Flickr. I got some super-cheap pieces of felt, some coordinating embroidery floss and black perle cotton from Jo-Ann’s and went to town.
It holds a bunch of needles as well as some embroidery floss, and my needle grabber sticks in there pretty well, too.
