Description

and it was just too cute to pass up. Very easy, and fun!
Fabrics are DS Quilts for Fabric Traditions.
 
I changed the original a bit by sewing 2 hexies back to back for the cover and I used a hexagon of the super stiff interfacing inside- the original had you sew the hexagon to wool felt but I wanted to use all four fabrics for the covers.

ohh that's a cute little needle book - is there a way to close it - as it's on a key ring you don't want an open needle book in your hand bag ...

Mymble

Good idea !- no reason why you couldn't add a little loop or fabric strap- for this one- I think if you simply position the needles and pins inward you'd be fine- it doesn't really open as wide as it looks- I pryed it open for the pic:))) -took some doing to get it to stay open;)

Looks great Mymble !! Cute little projects are so satisfying. :)

Laweigel

Could this be any cuter??? Just love it Margaret!

Mymble

Allpatchedup Thanks- you're right- seems like whenever life is crazy and there's no opportunity to really tackle the big projects- just making something like this is enough:)

Mymble

Laweigel Thanks- these make up so quick and they're almost foolproof- this will be on my list of go to little gifts!

Laweigel , this is a perfect needle case for a small sewing kit. I'm going to have to make myself one right away! Thanks so much!

+Mumbles, oops, sorry. I thought it was Laweigel that had the original post. I love, +Mumbles, and it is just a perfect little item.

Mymble

Rebeccajeffsmith Thanks- knew I had to make one as soon as I saw it!

Mymble

Quilterinmotion Yes- it is the cutest thing- and so easy to make- you definitely should!

Mymble

Quilterinmotion LOL-Quite all right- and it's possible I mumble from time to time but I'm mymble:)- it the name of a character from a series of books by the Finnish author Tove Jannsson - they were some of my children's favorite books growing up- think Winnie the Pooh in Finland:))) and maybe with a bit more angst and inner turmoil!

Quilterinmotion I'm flattered you thought I made the cute little needle case... Mymble it is darn cute! And, sewn so nicely.

Mymble

Carolmarie Thanks - these are so sweet- everyone needs at least one:)))

Okay, Mymble . MY apologies!! I think I was mumbling when I fumbled with the computer keys. Anyway, I've made it; it's adorable and a quick project. I see some of these being mailed to some friends as surprises. I love sending little surprises to unsuspecting friends! Thank you so much.

Quilterinmotion Ha Ha- I love it- my typing skills are frequently in that category;))))- so glad you liked making it! You are so right- these are perfect for a little gift!
