more needle books


Update: There is a pattern available for this now: the Flora Needle Book pattern, available for instant download at Etsy and Craftsy.

This new batch is finished! I had a great time picking out new color combos and trying some different things.

They are all handmade of wool and wool-blend felts, and the covers have been fortified with fabric stiffener to make them a bit more durable. They each have a loop for hanging, and a button/string closure. Inside are four felt pages for parking your needles.

I'll be listing them in the shop, hopefully by Monday afternoon.

  11. These are absolutely gorgeous. I remember making them in school, when I was 6 or 7, but they were nowhere as nice as your ones, although I do still have one 35 years later
