Surely I’m not the only person who has several pieces of felt in their stash, but rarely used them! Mine are left from a Busy Book I made when my daughter was younger. This week I was inspired by my felt stash to create a very easy (and useful!) needle book.
To be honest I have never owned a needle book before, and now I’m wondering why now! It’s so handy to have all my pins and needles in one place. It’s easy to grab and go anywhere I want sew.
Speaking of grab and go, make sure to grab a few pieces from your scrap stash for this project! It’s a perfect way to feature those little bits and pieces of your favorite fabrics. If they aren’t quite big enough, just piece a few together until they are large enough. You can find the cutting measurements below – feel free to pin the pic so it’s easy to refer back to!
After you have all your pieces cut you are ready to start sewing. The entire project won’t take more than 30-45 minutes to sew. You can follow along with the step by step instructions HERE!
I would love to know, what are your favorite 60 minute or less projects? I’ve put together several of my favorites in a playlist that you can find right HERE! If you give any of them a try (or any of my tutorials!) I would love to see a picture! You can share them on the Whitney Sews Facebook page or on Instagram with the #WhitneySews. I’ll be back next week with another new tutorial. Until then, Happy Sewing!
