A needle keeper is something that we as stitchers need. They come in handy– I am always on the hunt for needles. They get lost and set aside and yeah- you probably can relate.
So- here’s a quick little project that allows you to make a few of these….keep them in every corner of the house, in the car, purse, sewing bag or make a bunch and give them to friends- or use them as a make and take!
Super simple non sewing project- and with the variety of paper out there, you can totally have one that matches your personality. So fun!
double sided paper – patterns on each side– you can find this kind of paper at your local craft store. It’s almost a cardstock thickness which is great for this kind of project.
small pre cut felt shapes— these come in a lot of different shapes. Pick one that you will love. The one I used was from a Winter collection.
