A small book to keep needles in

I made a needle book for my mother in the technic crazy quilting, wich I plan to write more about here soon. I made it with fabric scraps my mother have given to me, so the colours and patterns (love em’) were no suprise, but so were the gift.

N?lbok i crazy quilting-teknikI really like how it came out, as a whole. In this picture you only see the front of it, with some different stitches, pearls and ribbon embrodery that I tried (but my fingers hurt to much from it). I’ll try to arange som detail pics later. I really need a needle book myself, all my needles are still in there different packedges, but I didn’t find the time right now. I’m reading Il nome della roso this week, and it’s keeping my occupied.

PS: If you want to look at pretty paper packages visit Rosie’s Needle Book Museum. Isn’t it great that you can collect anything you like? Like napkins. Rosie writes:
To me they are as beautiful as the “Mona Lisa”! I agree!

  2. the needlebook looks amazing! but does it open from the top or the sides? i cant quite make out how it works. but beautiful embroidery – ribbon work is a challenge, isnt it?
    i made needle books for my sisters last year for their birthdays and they really appreciated them. but mine pale in comparasion to yours – i made mine simply out of felt and with a bright button closure.
    excellent needle book link also!

  3. what a super cool needle book! i did a pillow in the same technique for my mother once. it’s such a fun way of using up old bits and pieces of fabric and trying to fin clever ways to embroider everything together. :-)
