Needle Books


I never heard of a "needle book" was until I came across one on Bonnie Hunter's site in January...




What a cool thing to carry with you to hold small scissors and a few pins and needles... unlike the bulky ziploc bag I carry with all my sewing supplies!  So, I decided to make one, raiding my scrap bins for the materials... 



The inside...



There are pockets behind the scissors pouch and the needle/pin fabric so you can wind thread on a card to slide behind the scissors... or even slide in a wound bobbin.  The ribbon holds the scissors in place.

Now... I think I'm going to make another one...
