It's always an adventure.
Last year when looking for new projects on blogs, I came across an entry on 'Twin Fibers" where she mentioned making a needle book with her daughter. (She points you to a tutorial by "Sew She Sews" here.) A book for needles. With a pocket that could hold little scissors or thread. This could be my solution to where are my needles. Or at least a 'book' is bigger than a scrap of batting to look for.
I pulled out my scraps of 'Whimsy'
One book has the 'pink honeycomb' fabric for pockets, the other has the 'blue honeycomb'. I really like the stripe the top of the pocket is bound in.
A couple hours of cutting, ironing, and sewing and I had two needle cases. I hand sewed the bias binding. (I have not mastered the 'machine binding' skill.) I think it took longer to get the snaps on correctly than it did to hand sew it. (Note to self: a snap press would be a really groovy gift.)
Now to start searching for where my needles are.
