Needles on the Go

I’ve been on the go with my sewing class and needed a safe place to keep my needles.

The solution was this cute little Matchbook Needle Keeper.  It’s so easy to make, it only takes a few minutes.

Here’s how to make one:

Cut a piece of scrapbook cardstock weight paper 5 3/4″ x 2″.

Using a bone folder or comparable tool, fold the bottom up 3/4″ and fold the top down 2 1/4″

It should look like this:

Next cut a piece of felt 2 1/2″ x 2″.  I used wool felt.

And staple the felt into the “matchbook” needle keeper.

Just add needles.  It shuts just like a matchbook.

Like many of my favorite projects, it was quick and easy… and used scraps from other projects… so it was essentially free.

I just love when form meets function.
