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.
