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!
