I've been lusting after a needle book for a while now, and I absolutely love all the altoid tin projects I see on here.  So, I decided to combine the two! What do you guys think? I'm seriously lacking in the embroidery skills department, but practice makes better, right?




I covered a button, and glued an elastic band so the whole thing would be held closed.  I love that!
Filled with stitch markers, a  tapestry needle, scissors, etc. Yay!

Hey that's great, what a good idea to combine the two.  I especially love the effect you've achieved with the embroidery on the larger flower ... and the colours you have chosen. 

It's so pretty; and practical, always a winning combination in my book  Smiley

I really like that.  A good way to organize little easily lost sewing trinkets.
