These Needle books are great if you do any handwork! And they make excellent gifts since they work up fast! Mine is made with Alison Glass Fabric.
This fabric is from her Lucky Penny line and intended for a needle book, including two small panels.
(Note ~ You might not be able to find this fabric. If you love the look check out her Field Day Fabric as an alternate! She also sells a Needle Book Kit!)
I decided to cut up the panels for a more patchwork looking book and added this bright pink fabric from my stash (part of her Handcrafted line) to make the inside pocket.
My needle book measures 6 1/2″ x 4″ closed. To make this size you will need:
A (4) 4 1/2″ x 7″ patches for inside and outside cover
B (1) 7 x 7 1/2″ patch for pocket
C (1) 7 1/2″ x 9″ piece of batting
D (2) 5 1/2″ x 7″ patch of wool or felt for pages
E DMC perle cotton for embellishing
