Winnie needle book pattern


Winnie needle book is perfect for storing all sewing essentials handy in one place. It fits nicely in a handbag, so it is ideal for crafting on the go or as an emergency mending kit!

With various pockets, there is plenty of room to keep a spool of thread, a pair of scissors, a thimble, a seam ripper, safety pins, a tape measure and so much more. The front cover is gently padded to be used as a pincushion.

The inside “pages” are cut from felt, ideal to store needles or pins, and can be further decorated using a contrasting fabric patch, vintage ribbon, buttons or lace. The outside edge is finished with a bias tape and the needle book is securely closed with a magnetic snap.
