The Confidence Building Needle Book

Sunday, January 29, 2012

I've really been struggling lately with every sewing endeavor I've attempted. I'm lacking in practice and patience right now and it's resulted in a garbage can full of failed projects. I'm trying to go back to basics and rebuild my confidence and I was hoping this needle book would be a step in the right direction.

I made this for a friend who started cross-stitching about a year ago and has been asking for a book to store her needles in ever since.

It didn't end up in the garbage but I had to use my seam ripper WAY more than I should have for such a simple project. Nevertheless, it's finished and it's a step in the right direction for me!










































I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

It's really cute! Is it just craft felt in the middle? My mum's been bugging me to make her a needle book lately...

I was going to ask the same thing about the pages! I used wool felt for one, but it seemed too thick, and I plan to use flannel next time. Your needle book came out cute, your friend is lucky!

Thanks for all the nice comments!

I use something called "fancy felt" for all my felt projects. The colors are really vibrant and it's much more durable than craft felt but without the bulk of wool felt.

This is the shop I buy it from...

I'm sure normal craft felt would work just fine for a project like this though.

I must lack the patience gene in the sewing department.. I don't think I could cope with long projects! This ihowever, is awesome! I need a needle book and I think you've inspired me to get off my backside and make myself one!
