That's such a great idea!

I absolutely LOVE this!!!!  I was just thinking last night that I needed to do something different with all me needles because well...I loose them in my couch and then proceed to find them when they poke me in the A**  Grin
I am going to try to make one of these for myself.  I'm sure my hubby will love it and my booty will enjoy it too(OUCH)

My father broke me of sticking needles in the furniture when I first started to embroider.  I won't elaborate, but I was only nine.  Such language! Shocking!

Anyway, I have always done what my grandmother did and stick my needle in my shirt.  That's fine for on the bus, but I like this organizer much better. Great idea.

Such a great idea!  My friend Jean likes to tell the story of growing up with three sisters whom all liked to sew.  Their leather couch never had a chance.

What a great idea :-) I've been looking for an alternative to the armrest since getting a dog and having a baby...don't want anyone eating needles!

OOohh!  Make me one, that way my mother won't kill me for leaving needles in the couch (yeah I need to not do that anymore, lol)!  It's awesome!  And I may have to steal your idea, with your permission of course!

This is cool!  Cool I'm guilty of sticking my straight pins in the arm of the chair I'm sitting in. Wink

An organiser! How perfect! While I am not guilty of sticking needles in the couch, I do have a tendency to lose EVERYTHING! And keeping it in a cute place like that looks just the ticket.

Thanks dude, oh and your embroidery? That rocks too. Tongue

I have a wist!
So I up and decided to do the whole blog thing...

I do personal swaps!

What a brilliant idea!  I need one, and my sister will probably get one for Christmas.  She was visiting me last summer, and sitting on my "sleep-number" bed (aka fancy giant air mattress) just sewing away.... and poking her huge quilting pins right into my mattress.... AAAAAAHH!  Talk about panic!  (Those are some tough mattresses, btw)  I don't poke pins into the couch, but I try to juggle it all and it always ends up lost in the couch anyway.

Thanks for posting... I WILL be making these.  And your embroidery is very neat.

Great idea! It could save injuries. Ever lost a needle in the armrest? Oh no! Me either, I'm just saying it could be dangerous if you did!

I think I've been running with sissors my whole life! So nice to find someone else to run with!!!
