Felt Friday: Sewing Needle Book

Felt Sewing Needle Books

Back in 10th grade, during a beginning sewing class, our teacher had us make a little felt mouse with a flapping mouth to keep track of and store our sewing needles. I have kept that silly mouse with it’s ribbon tail and lopsided eyes for nearly 10 years and only recently have come to realize how handy it has been. No one likes to lose a small, sharp, pointy object (just waiting to be stepped on by a bare foot).

In my craft-blog stalking, I ran across this adorable felt needle book–the adult version of my mouse–and decided to make my own version for Mother’s Day gifts (luckily both my mom and mother-in-law are both sewers).

What I did: cut out 2 long rectangles of felt (one 1/2 inch smaller on each side), embellish (with felt and buttons, but whatever you have on hand works), sew together, add closure, and you’re done! Make one for yourself or for the sewers in your life!

I love nerds (well, one in particular), sewing, crafting, blog-stalking, and being happy.

  1. A keeper in sponitrg parlance is there to stop the ball from getting past or slipping through (ie wicket keeper in cricket). Equipped with a large glove to maximize keeping ability, entices and caresses the kept ball safely for the next play. When my patients arrive from acute wards to sub-acute I often think our rehabilitation team play the role of keeper. They catch the patient, cushion their fall, then nurture and enable their recovery and maximize their potential. To be a keeper is a privilege.
