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.
These needle books are made from:
- upcycled wool belting (cover)
- colourful fabric remnants (cover and secret pocket)
- antique cotton sheets (needle pages)
- 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?
Made by Daughter of a Seamstress in Melbourne, Australia, from reclaimed materials.
