Needle Book with Pin Cushion

I don't sew very often, but when I do I am adamant about proper storage of the needles.  I made the mistake once of misplacing a needle after I set it down for just a few minutes.  I laid it on the coffee table so that I could use my hands to do something else on the project but when I went to grab it again it was gone, and unfortunately I located it with the sole of my foot days later.  Trust me, it's a mistake I only want to make once, and if possible you never want to make it at all.  Whether it's for long-term storage or to set your needle down for just a moment, this two-in-one needle storage solution from Diane at Crafty Pod leaves you with no excuse for losing your sharps.  (Unless it's more of a case of being clumsy and dropping the needle.  I've done that before too.  Oops.)  [how to make a needle book with pin cushion]

  • Yarn, on hand
  • Fabric scrap, on hand
  • Pollyfill, on hand or about $3

    Thank you so much for the feature, Heather! I’ve totally done that find-needle-with-foot thing too. :-)
