Here is a wallet I made to carry my needles, pins, and tiny scissors in.  This way I can take small projects in baggies, and have my needles/scissors/pins in one place!

Here's the front...


And here's the inside...


Comments welcome!

Good job. I need one if these too. The scissor pocket is a good idea.

What an idea!  I have to make me something like this so I don't have stuff all over the couch, my husband gets mad if he sits on a scissors!

Really like this.  It's neat that it appears to be a "book" - has firm covers instead of just the felt, so it holds its shape.  Was gonna ask how you did that, but see you're planning a tute.  Yay!  I'm looking thru my felt, waiting for your guidance.

Sewing “Wallet” Tutorial

Bear with me, as this is the first tutorial I have ever put together…

Cut two pieces of cardboard to the size that you would like your wallet to be.

Cut four pieces of felt, just slightly larger than the cardboard. (A little less than a ¼” more on each side.)

Cut a piece of felt about 2/3 of the height of the cardboard and 3” wide.  This will be the “spine” of your wallet.

Cut a felt appliqué for the front of the wallet, a square piece of felt for the needle side of the inside, and a piece about half the height of the cardboard, and almost as wide for the scissor pocket.

Putting it all together…
Step one: Sew the appliqué on the piece of felt that will be the front cover.

Step two: Sew the needle square onto the piece that will be on the inside left of the wallet.

Step three: Sew the scissor pocket to the piece that will be the inside right of the wallet, leaving a v-spaced area in the middle to fit the scissors. Sew a small button in front of where the scissors will be and a length of felt with a slit cut in it over the scissor area to hold the scissors in the pocket (or they will fall out in transit).

Step four: Sew the front cover and inside left piece around the first piece of cardboard using a blanket stitch. On the left side of the cover/right side of the needle page, insert the spine piece so that it is sewn into the cover.

Step four: Sew the back cover and inside right piece around the second piece of cardboard using a blanket stitch. On the right side of the back cover/left side of the scissor page, insert the spine piece so that it is sewn into the cover. It should now look like a book.

Sew a piece of elastic onto the back cover, and a button onto the front cover to be able to keep the book closed.

Voila… it should be ready to store all your needles, pins and a pair of scissors!  I’ve been toying with making another and putting a pocket on the back to include cards of floss – but I haven’t gotten around to that yet.

PM me if it’s not clear or you need more instructions.  Thanks!

Thanks for the tute. It makes perfect sense. I didn't notice the V in the scissor pocket before I read the tute. I think I can do this  Cheesy

Thanks again!

That is so cute! Nice job! I definitely want to make one of those. I am always losing needles (and often stepping on them- ouch!) and this seems great for traveling as well. Smiley
