Needles In A Crimson Forest

It all sounds so mysterious... but it's actually just a needle book. I've been needing/wanting a needle book for quite some time. All my needles have been in disarray (no joke). Picking up my dumb ol' tomato pin cushion to constantly examine which needle I need, only to find the particular needle in question still stuck in some small piece of fabric somewhere, just wasn't working for me.

I've been working non-stop to fill orders and to keep my shop well stocked. While making more dolls, I saw a perfect little leftover piece of fabric for my needle book. Stop the presses! I am making something just for me!My book is made from a thrifted pajama top, from American Eagle Outfitters, with little, red, leaping deer. I inserted four pages of white wool felt, added a grosgrain ribbon loop and the sweetest little green tree button - voila!

I liked it so much that I made another one for the shop. The second one is better. It has a pocket.

No more searching for needles in a haystack... now I just look in the forest :)

I love it! I have needles everywhere! I have a hard time telling them apart...I just use whatever I can find...maybe if they were organized and actually had a place to be put I'd keep them straight:-)

Clever idea and it's adorable to boot! I'm lovin' it!

What a great idea! My pins do well in my tomato pin cushion, but my needles always get pushed through and then they get lost inside.

I would have made you a needlebook if you said something. It wouldn't have been anywhere near as nice as yours though -- I love that pajama fabric -- so, nevermind.

I just forgot why I am at your blog...to look for a specific post about...oh yeah, the links opening in a new window. I'm going to try that tonight.
