    Needle Books

    I've been seeing various needle books on blogs and must have been living under a rock b/c I'd never seen them before.... so I decided to make one...

    Several folks asked how I did it so I put together a tutorial HERE... and this is the second needle book I made...

    Used fabric scraps... the kitty needle book went to a friend of mine who quilts and the second is for me!

    Freda, they are absolutely beautiful. Well done! I love the kitty one ... and I love the one for you too, and Oh, I love them both.

          Absolutely lovely! Love your blog too. I inheritted my mom's Martha Washington style (never knew it was called that, thanks) sewing chest full of neat sewing notions. Mine has wooden knobs. I love it.

                Thank you, ladies! It's a fun quick project that uses scraps... something I seem to have a ton of!

                    Never heard of needle books either, but a wonderful idea to use scraps. Thanks for sharing. Just thought that I could use one on our vacation. I'll do one right away, I mean a needle book

                      I saw these in a civil war quilting book I have, Remembering Adelia, these are too cute. Will be adding to my list
                      To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!
