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.

I’m linking this post up with Fabric Tuesday. Hop on over to the Quilt Story blog to check out some other fabric crafty goodness.
