I thought you might need a needlekeep to go with the “Take Time To Smell the Roses” pincushion.
So, I’ve designed a little needlekeep for you so you can pop it into a bag or purse to take with you on your travels.
It is only small- and the stitching on it is done with one strand of thread in one colour. But it’s a really handy size.
It’s something I keep in my bag and take with me everywhere.
Here it is open -so you can see the little pockets on the inside for scissors, a quick unpick and some felt pages for needles.
And here’s the back pocket of the little Needlekeep…
Where you can put some threads, buttons or other small bits and pieces.
Notice the edges of the Needlekeep pages are pinked with pinking shears as a little added decoration.
I’ve also added a cotton reel designer button to the front of the needlecase- but you can use any button you like.
And of course the instructions for making this rather cute and very handy little Needlekeep are here Download Weeds Needlekeep3
And the stitchery designs and instructions here Download Needlekeep2
This will give you a handy set of a Needlekeep and Pincushion to store all those necessary little sewing things.
And if you’d like to have something quick to sew for a small gift for someone special, or to use yourself- this is a really lovely idea- and works!
