You could create a needle wallet similar to the foot wallet I created shown here:


i would make the pockets two third the measurement of the needle case- if you don't have an embroidery machine or do hand embroidery you could label the pocket with fabric paint-

they have these things to store beads in that are like stackable litle tubs that the bottom of one would screw on to the one below to create a lid.  I know it's probably sily the way i am describing it but you can get a stack of like 6 or something of them at walmart for around $2 or so.  I use that for all the itty bitty sewing machine notions and just keep the stack behind my machines.  they're clear so it makes it easy to see

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

I just bought one of these:

I didn't pay full price for it; it was 75% off.

I used to keep my machine needles in a pencil case, but whenever there was a sale on them, I could never remember what needles I needed to buy.  This case folds in thirds and the first two thirds have clear sleeves where the plastic needle cases fit exactly in.  The bottom third has holes for needles that have been used, and it's labeled so you know exactly what needle is in each hole.

Something I've been wondering and I'm quoting you myrLegacy since your handy NeedlePack has a place for used needles...

What do you do with used sewing machne needles?  Is it safe to resharpen and reuse them?  If so, how do you resharpen them?

I discard them the way I do any medical "sharps" by putting them in a plastic container like an old cottage cheese container or something, and then tossing. I don't want my preschoolers rummaging through the trash and running around the house with them. The way they did that half-eaten chicken leg. Children can be gross.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.
