It seems like Thursday is turning into "ignoring my to do list" day. Last week it was that quick tidying that turned into an all day project. This week I just *had to* make a new needle book. So I did. ;-)
That's the outside of it up there. I love that fabric. It's neon pink, what more can you want? (It's Ellen Luckett Baker Rough Cut - Botanica in neon pink, in case you're wondering.)
The button is a vintage one I had in my stash. Actually, the whole thing is made from my stash, so that's good!
There are two felt 'pages' for the needles. Luckily, I had some felt in exactly the same colour as the internal fabric.
The internal fabric (Scruffy Daisy in Ice Frappe from Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis if that takes your fancy), I love the subtle colour of this fabric. I usually pick colours that are much more in your face, but I like it toned down sometimes.
And look, the inside is quilted AND there are two pockets in the needle book. I need that. Somewhere to keep thread and scissors. Maybe even a few bits of fabric and EPP templates. You never know when you might find yourself with a bit of time that need to be filled with some needle work.
I have to point out this scallop edging, which I made with my scallop pinking scissors*. Isn't it cute? :-)
*I bought it from Cloud Craft (not an affiliate link or nuthin') - they actually have three different sizes of scallop scissors!
