Got needles but nowhere to store them? You need a needle book!

These lovely needle-storage books from Daughter of a Seamstress are a modern take on a time-honoured storage solution. Store your needles and pins in style and separate them by function (embroidery, darning, leather, sashiko, etc.) or however you see fit.

Handmade locally from 100% rescued and reclaimed fabric and buttons, they are good for the planet, too. 

The current edition of needle books (pictured) is made from:

  • upcycled wool belting (cover) 
  • Doops Designs silk remnants, printed with vegetable dyes in Byron Bay (cover)
  • antique cotton sheets (needle pages)
  • cotton fabric scraps (secret pocket)
  • vintage button closures, most likely from Grandma’s stash
  • rescued lace (ties)

Each book contains six needle pages to fit most hand-sewing and darning needles, with a secret pocket to accommodate tiny treasures: needle threaders and snag repair needles so great you’d cry if you misplaced them (ahem), lost-and-found buttons waiting to be reattached, or mini mending prayers.

If you’re thinking: “I could make that!” Let’s be honest. You and I probably won’t, and we wouldn’t make one this cute. Why not treat yourself or delight a new mender with a sweet gift?

NOTE: Each needle book features unique fabric scraps and buttons; books shown here are for reference only. Needles, needle threader and safety pin sold separately.

Made by Daughter of a Seamstress in Melbourne, Australia, from reclaimed materials.
