Needlebook Finish

This is an important tool if you are like me and have a tendency to stick needles in a random piece of fleece that seems to have taken up residence on the craft table, or whatever is at hand.

I stitched this needlebook 10 years ago. In fact, I took the class with Lauren Sauer in 1995 or 1996. Last year I finished the scissor fob. Only the scissor rest left to do! Someday let's not rush headlong into things. I did not use the designer's finishing directions because they involved blind stitching the entire piece. This is me we're talking about here!

If you need directions to make a needlebook, these people can be of help: our friend MaeriInstructables,  Nana Company does it with a button and hair elastic closure from, Lynn (makes everything so fancy), or Tiny Modernist.

Your needlebook turned out beautifully. I have a few things that would be so useful, if only I would just finish-finish them! Thanks for the inspiration.

Lovely finish and a great tool. I finally got a needle minder - too many lost needles I would find later stuck into odd bits and pieces.

Nice needlebook. I keep my old needles inside a little tin with a magnet in the lid.
