More Sewing Goodies


Now that I have the Sewing Kit finished, I had fabric left. Those scraps were begging to be used for more matching accessories, so I made a few more quickie projects.


The needle book is made like a tiny quilt, folded over, with a wool felt ‘page’ to keep the needles on.

It has a loop over a shank button for closing.

The pin cushion is squares of both fabrics in a four patch on both sides. The top got a button.


This cute thread catcher is just two triangles sewn together.

I made a bunch of them, and pinned the pic to my Pinterest boards with the link to the instructions. Click on Triangle Thread Catcher to see my little group of them and link to the instructions.

Now, maybe I should do a mug rug, or a portable ironing board? Decisions, decisions!!

See the matching Portable Ironing Board!

  1. These are so adorable! I love the idea for the little needle book 🙂 I will have to try to find some felt (I live nowhere near any craft stores…)

  2. Very nice little goodies!

  3. These are just as cute as a button! They would make cute little gifties for sewing friends!

  4. What great project to use up your scraps! A mug rug or two would be neat!

  5. very very cute!!!

  6. I loved the needle book. I am always leaving needles pinned into pieces of card or paper lying around and then tossing them out in the rubbish.

  7. Each of these is sew cute! The buttons add a great touch! Nicely done!

  8. A needle book that’s like a little quilt – love it! You could use really tiny scraps on the pin cushion and I do keep them as small as that. Great use of buttons on all three, too.

  9. Hi Carole…thanks for rejuvenating these cuties at Tuesday Archives this week. Your needle case idea is one to keep bookmarked for a little quilters gift at my upcoming Spring Retreat! THANKS!!!

  10. Nice needlecase and cute accessories.

  11. very Cute. I’ve made the little Triangle thread catchers before was nice to see it and remind me of it.
