You guys, have you heard of needle books?!  Okay, so not only are these  unbelievably adorable — complete with felt flower embellishments,  embroidery, and a button closure — but the mini-books are made to hold  your needles!  Yes, your needles, so those frantic  digging-through-drawers-cause-you-have-to-finish-this-project-and-can’t-find-a-needle  episodes will be a thing of the past! The multi-hued wool-felt book  created by Mmm Crafts carries four pages of stiffened felt to park your tools in, and, better  yet, it even has a little hook so you can hang it on the wall for easy  access.  We’re going to continue geeking out over a cup of tea and  crocheting projects — no more lost needles!! — so, talk amongst  yourselves.



This is one of those BAM! Why didn’t I think of this….we have cases for knitting needles and crochet hooks, why not sewing needles (mine go in a pin cushion on my sewing basket’s lid.

Nice job!

I remember seeing my grandma make things like this. It’s like there is a whole generation of us out here just sort of flapping in the wind from gusts of loneliness or despair or boredom. Do what our grandmothers did - CRAFT YOUR ASS OFF! You’ll feel better and have some new nifty thing. I am glad to see so many young crafters and makers making things and sharing them with the rest of the world. Use the Internet for good, not evil!
And a big thank you to all the designers and crafters who I am grateful for sharing their creations and inspiring me…

This looks very interesting, I like the recycling appeal - anyone who has taken a sweater apart to make something new would understand that. Lovely.

I would if I could, you know, eat you up and keep you in some safe warm space under my beating heart, shield you from the darkness that eats at your edges and heal you and fortify you back to whole with the strength and splinting of my own bones. I wish I could cocoon you and breathe joy into your lungs when I kiss you and fix everything in your world that’s broken, but all I have are these stupid words and arms that long to hold you hard and fast away from the nothing.

Nice embroidery, even nicer is the quote…

Very interesting. Trying to follow the story…I wonder who they were?
