Step 2: cut your fabric

from your fabric:
2 pieces 5x8

from your felt:
1 piece 5x8
2 pieces 4.25x6.5

(whoops, did not take a photo of the actual fabric I was working with. sorry!)
<p>Love your fabric choices, and the button closure! I made one last year, using light cardboard inside the cover. I used an old file folder, and cut the size I wanted using the manufactured fold to make it easier. To cover it, cut your cardboard to size, and 2 pieces of fabric 1&quot; larger on each side. Sew right sides together on 3 edges, turn right side out, and slip it over the cardboard. Then turn the open edges under, press, and topstitch around the whole business. Proceed as above to attach felt &quot;pages&quot;. I like having the cardboard in the cover to keep the needles from poking through. It's a very handy item! </p>
I did one too :-) keep all my Singer 66k needles in it.
<p>I just found this and love the simple way you explained it.. I'm going to make modifications and decorate (beads and embroidery) the covers but use your instructions. Thanks so much! A really fancy one would be a great present for some sewers I know too!</p>
I love this...I recently crocheted one, by making a rectangle strip. Put my needles through the stitches, rolled it up,closed w/matching button...and whala! I actually use this one. Wow! I can add an image in here.I'm new at this site. Yours is the 1st comment. :)
Another great hand made project!...Love it!!...
You're always so neat and precise with your sewing stuff... and you even pin stuff in place! <br> <br>I should learn to be less lazy. :) <br> <br>Did you see the ones I made for an upcoming speed challenge? I forgot to take a picture of the tree one.
thanks for this, the day after I saw your needle book I was at work and their needles were all thrown in the bottom of the tin they kept the sewing stuff being a fabric shop they have a lot of scraps of fabric so I used them to make one its thrown together but it works well, so cheers again :)
Wow! I've been needing a decent pinbook for a while now, but havent been bothered to make one. I guess your strawberry was getting old. (I was just checking out some of your old ibles)
Haha, yes, the strawberry was looking rough. One of my cats mauled it. :P
Did it think it was a real berry? <br>Nom noms! :P
Nice project. I have to say that I read your first paragraph as saying that your old needle books had felt interiors and an exterior made of cats fur. Ewww!!! Figured out what you meant after a second or two. :-)
I made a needle book and gave it away. Now I should try this method for me! Thanks for sharing.
Yeah you did... to me... and I love it! ;-D Thanks so much!!! <br> <br>Beautiful work, Jessy!!!
I did, didn't I! Happy you love it! Jess I love the fabric print you used! Our fabric selection here is pretty lame! Hope you both have a super day! <br>Sunshiine

wow so simple love it, I think I shall add that to near the top of my long list of projects, Love the fabric you used as well very cute, :)
Very good idea to keep this pins, needles and other piercing stuff in the right order! <br>Can be a good first project to do with my new sewing machine! <br> Gracias!
Definitely! It's super easy to do. :)
YAY! This will be in my sister's Christmas stocking this year! Thanks JRF!
YAY! You're welcome :D
Nice, I really need one of these.
You do! I think it might be the most useful thing I've ever sewn.
