Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Not For Mailing

Needle cases are wonderful things, especially for those of us who seem to “collect” hand sewing needles.

DSCI0019I thought it would be nice to have a cute new one to use for class and I found the cutest tutorial for this letter needle book.  Who could resist?  It was really easy to make with a few scraps of fabric and fast too.  Just under an hour to do. 

DSCI0023The only problem is that I was out of snaps and Velcro so I used a hook and eye.  Not quite as effective for a closure.  I mean it stays closed and is easy to open up, but it’s a pain to get it shut again.  Definitely go with Velcro on this project.  Still, I love how adorable it is, and it matches that envelope pouch I made a while ago (see Crafty All-Nighter, scroll down).

Here’s the updated list:

  • Needle case
  • Mug cozy
  • Pants
  • Hair accessories
  • Brooches
  • Necklace
  • Other jewelry
  • Food
  • Top
  • Skirt

One down, nine to go.  The next one should be up by Friday at the latest.  Fingers crossed
