Felt Needle Cases


These are little felt house needle holder books. I am in a private tip in exchange. Each month we have to make a page for someone in our group according to their book's theme. The month of September my partner's size and theme was 4" by 4" and Grandmother's Sewing Box. Also, she is not doing a book, but putting her pages in a container. I was rambling around the web and discovered this pattern and thought - aha! I will make her a needle book and attach it to her page with a fancy button. Doesn't every sewing box have a needle holder? I know when I was young, maybe ten, I made one for my mom - a book with a felt cat on it out of felt.

The book consists of a front, back, and a page or two in between. I put a few needles in the pages. The roof of the house is sewn together and the book opens from the bottom. I made two. One for my partner and one for me. I sent her the orange and purple one - the one I liked best. I hope she likes it.....
