Needlecase

I've been becoming increasingly frustrated by my complete inability to find a needle when I want one these days.

Something had to be done.
So I made this!













I learnt the Scrappy Quilt-As-You-Go technique from this tutorial and then improvised the pattern for a needle book.

Such a good way to use up all those small scraps of fabric that you don't want to throw away and so liberating to not have to worry about what fabrics go with what! I think I may start using this technique a lot more!

I'm off to make some more...

  10. That looks fantastic! I need to make one of those too. At the moment my needles are stored on a piece of felt floating around my crafty nook. Not great.
