OK, I'll fess up, I did it, I lost the needle in the armrest and I've been impaled on the one stuck in my shirt and god forbid the day my hubby hugged me and got stabbed. Yes, I'm absolutely certain we all need your cool organizer, now to just sit aside some time to do one.

Oh, I definitely need one of those.  I am always sticking needles all over the place.  The worst is when I hold it in my mouth, and sometimes the eye of the needle hooks around one of my taste buds!  So painful...  Er, I hope I'm not the only one who has done that...

Anyway, lovely idea, and great fabric choice!

This is such a good idea. I'm always losing needles and pins in my sofa armrest.

Erm, no. You're not the only one. I thought I was.

And the caddy is very cool too! If I sat in an armchair when I worked I'd definitely want one! (I get teased for sitting in a hard chair in the kitchen at my house, but it's hard to lose a needle there.)

 Cheesy  I NEED one of these.  I especially like the magnetic spot.  What a crafty way to include everything.  Now if I could only get my sewing machine fixed.....

excellent idea and execution - there is no question that my little tools and bits of thread are littering the couch where I sit!

Also a fun project for a day that you need instant gratification - most of us could whip up something like this with materials at home in a day.  I know that I love a mini project in the middle of a big one to get new motivation.

I NEED one of these! I always stuck my needles in my couch too, until we got leather furniture! Lately I've been using the throw pillows but your idea is much better.  Cheesy

This is So Cool!  I'm sure there are still needles lurking in the arms of my parents couch....
The trashcan idea is great.  Whenever I embroider, no matter how hard I try to clean up the house always gets littered with little endlets of thread.
