Fun Felted Needle Cases

One of the most useful items in my sewing studio is my needle case ... in fact, I have two of them that I use all the time! They are a good place to store needles that are not used very often (think: curved leather needles, big fat embroidery needles, and long thin beading needles) and others that are used frequently but interchangeably.

These little needle cases have been created from pieces of felting that were left over from other projects and they make delightful covers for the little needle books. The interior "pages" are wool Melton which holds the needles very well and helps to keep them polished and smooth from the natural oils that are in the sturdy wool. A little bit of additional hand stitching and beading makes them worthy of gifting to your favourite sewing friend :)
