I've been in desperate need of a needle book. my embroidery needles were very untidy and i kept poking myself so i finally broke down and made one. i used the tutorial here. mine is currently missing a closure because i don't have any snaps on hand.
I used urban circus for the exterior and sugar pop for the inside. the bindings are an art gallery fabric and sugar creek. it's a very handy thing to have. the tutorial was pretty clear, and it didn't take too much time.
i also made some fabric boxes for my craft room. I used craft-fuse interfacing and starch when pressing.
the little scraps seem to explode all over the table so i'm hoping these will keep them at bay. it was fun and very easy to make these little boxes. i made myself use some of the more "precious" fabrics in the stash. the cotton/linen blends make a nice sturdy box. i'd like to make at least a couple more. i'm finding that you can never have enough.
btw, i made it as a finalist in TWO categories of Celebrate Color! all of the entries are so lovely--you can vote here. i especially love this quilt. it's gorgeous!
