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.

What a cute idea! I know what to do with my butterfly felt now. Cheesy I hate when the needles get pushed into the pin cushion.  Angry
