I am forever losing my needles and I have a terrible fear that one day I will step on one! Ouchy!  So...I decided I would make a little felt wallet-type book to hold all my embroidery and cross stitch needles.  I used the caterpillar cross stitch pattern from, Miss Woolly's mini cross-stitch kit (by Eliza Edwards), for the image on the front.

It has a button closure and little berry applique made of felt. 



I sewed a little piece of aida cloth to the inside cover to keep the cross stitch needles in:



I also added a small green pocket on the back cover to keep a needle package in....maybe I will put a seam ripper in there too!



I used the cheapo kind of felt that is like 5 pieces for a dollar.  I want to buy some of that yummy wool felt when I get more money....someday!  Undecided

Thanks for looking peeps!

This is probably my favorite needlebook of all the ones I've seen.  It's just adorable.
