I made a needlebook! I decided it was time to have somewhere to store all my needles together, so I decided I needed a needlebook. I used basic craft felt in two different colors. It has six interior pages. The binding is just a blanket stitch securing all 8 layers together. I used backstitch and the lazy daisy stitch to decorate the front. I used all 6 strands of floss. I also embroidered a little bit of the inside pages.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I had to redo the binding once because it didn't go through all 8 layers evenly. It was much better the second time.

There's more pics and info on my blog, if anyone's interested.

I love needle books, but I was lazy and ordered mine from Etsy.  Once the dreaded crimbo is done and dusted I'm going to make a load of these.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
