Felt Needle Book

I've been working on a Christmas project for my kids and a niece.  I made them their own sewing kits!  You'll have to wait to see pictures of the completed kits, but here's the felt needle books I made.  The blue one is for Caleb of course, and the pink ones are for Rebekah and my niece.

They were easy to make.  First, I cut two rectangles of felt.  Then I cut an embellishment out, either a heart or a moon.  I hand sewed the embellishment on first.  Then sandwiched a piece of ribbon between the two rectangles and used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch it together.  Since I wanted to give them a plastic needle, I added a small piece of elastic too.  I think they're so cute, I love them!  One of the needles I gave them is a sharp one, but the rest are tapestry needles with blunt ends!  The safety pins are for holding projects together so they don't have to use straight pins yet!

I even found pink plastic needles!  Check back in a few days to see the completed kit!
