I was watching YouTube, you know, as you do during a pandemic, and I came across a tutorial for a Needle book. Looking at my state of needle storage, I thought that was a brilliant idea to coral my pointy things. The tutorial I watched was by Nik the Booksmith Needlebook for Sharp Pokey Things - Tutorial
and I wanted to try and make it my own. Not being a professional book smith, or really good at sewing, I made one anyways! It was not as difficult as I thought. If you want to make on too, here are the details and the video tutorial below.
Here's what you need for the project: -Design paper or cardstock - Felt -Button -Elastic cord - Glue - Scissors -Paper trimmer (optional)
- Sewing Machine (optional) or needle and thread
- any decorations you want to use (that's the fun part!)
- You will need to cut your felt into 3 pieces: 1 piece 6.5" x 4.25" for the booklet, and 2 pieces 1.25" x 2.25" for the needle storage parts.
- Then you will need 2 pieces of cardstock for your covers that measure 4" x 3". You can use fabric, but the cardstock makes the booklet "Anti-Poke."
Once you have your pieces cut out, you're ready to put it together! Follow the instructions in the video for step-by-step instructions.
