My Needle Book From nanaCompany (Amy's) Tutorial

 The fat quarter bundle giveaway is here.



 I've been mixing in a few small things that I want to make for myself with Christmas sewing for others. It's a nice break and most of the little projects take no time at all to finish. Amy @ nanaCompany has a really fun tutorial for a super cute needle book. I pulled fabric from my scrap bins and got started.


 I was really happy the tutorial called for 1.5" squares because I already had some cut when I made the border for this quilt. No cutting, less time, bonus :)

For the front of the needle book I appliqued a strawberry. I added a smile because I thought Amy's birthday cake with the smile was really cute. I thought the strawberry might look cute with one too.


It was really fun embellishing the felt pages.


I used the tiniest buttons I could find to secure the ric rac. I love that ric rac. It's only about a bit more than 1/8 of an inch wide, teeny tiny.

I added a little piece of material to hold my needle threader. I got to use the cute pins I made too!

This is a really fun and quick tutorial. Thanks Amy! I love my little needle book :)
