Here's several examples of needlebooks. As you can see, they're super simple to make.

I love it! I love that fabric too. I'm sure you've already posted where you found the fabric.

I would have never thought that dress would look good on curvy gals based on the picture on the pattern!

Hi, I'm Kim. I've been lurking here for quite a while. So I wanted to introduce myself and share a dress I made last year for my annual Passion Parties Convention awards banquet. It's Butterick 4919 http://www.butterick.com/item/B4919.htm?tab=evening_prom_bridal&page=2. I used home decor fabrics and found a crinoline to go under it at the thrift store for $5! Sorry the picture isn't very good. They kept putting out that stage smoke and it made all the pics foggy. (That's my good friend Lisa in the pic with me).

I used 3 different dark red fabrics, one for the bodice, skirt, and the sash. It wsa fun making it! Hemming was a b!tch though--I did it by hand.  Thanks for looking!

Someone a while back gave me one of those needle books. It's made out of felt and I would keep my needles in there. Now I have no idea where it is. Currently I'm using one of the fliptop containers marketed for beads (kinda looks like a tic-tac container)

When I used to work in the costume shops, we would squeeze really full dresses/costumes for pins. It worked really well and I don't remember poking myself too badly. (Didn't want pins in it when the actors wore them)

Have you tried "squeezing" your tomato? It sounds funny (and painful) but you can use oven mitts or something to protect your fingers. You can usually squeeze just a little bit and they'll come out.
