A New Needlebook

Jan 21, 2015

Sometimes it's the little things.....
Sometimes I'm avoiding what I really should be working on....
Sometimes I can't help myself from adding cotton crochet trim....
I found this tutorial via Pinterest and I immediately knew I wanted to make a new needlebook using one of those mini charm packs.  Do you have any of those?  I have a bunch, and I'm never quite sure what to do with them.  This little needlebook was the perfect use.

I chose a mini charm pack of Doe by Carolyn Friedlander.  (available here
The tutorial has a couple cute ideas for embellishing the pages of the book.  It suggests using felt for the pages, but I honestly just used batting scraps.  I used to belong to the Sweetwater Label Crew and I have a bunch of these adorable labels stockpiled. I used the "a" initial on my favorite blue charm and added the label with my name to the front inside cover of the book. 

For as tiny as this project is, I spent quite a few hours playing with trims and embellishments.  Adding mini charms to pages, etc.  It was a fun little diversion and would be such a cute gift.  Well, I guess I should stop avoiding all my hand work now.  I just couldn't work on it before knowing I needed a cute new needlebook!

  2. I love it! I usually end up sticking my needles in my triple zip pouch. It can be dangerous picking it up sometimes. :) I think this is a much better - and prettier option.

  3. small projects like this make me wish I were still RETIRED! Surely THEN I'd have time to do the things that look so fun! Surely! ( I know the truth - there's never enough time!)
