11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / polkaDot NeedLE BOOK on: September 23, 2007 05:11:26 AM
I kept misplacing my needles and when I stuck them into my pin cushions they would get pushed into them. YOu know how that goes. I found this really cool felt and thought it would work really well on this.  I really hope that you all like it, let me know what you think and I would love to know if anyone had any other good ideas for needle books! Thanks for reading:

Here is the front, with a button closing the flap.


here are pics of the back




here are pics of the inside


I used straight pins with the needles since it is hard to see the needles and the straight pins really looked nice.


To put the book together I used embroidery floss and just did a stitch over and over around the spine of it till it covered it.

12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Decorated Knife Block, why should it be boring?!? on: September 05, 2007 03:47:50 AM
I Had this boring old knife block and I thought i gotta change that. I know that this isn't exactly ingenious or anything, but it is fun and I was happy with it. Hope you like it. Smiley

Here is one side picture


the other side is different, being the opposide of the other Smiley



I didn't do one of hte front because it didn't really show well.
The back is just turquoise. Then I distressed it a little bit. Thought it kind of looked retro>

Thanks for looking.
