Easy Needlebook

I love taking scraps and using them up in as many ways as possible.  Here is only one, easy to make and yes, everyone needs one, everyone has one, but we can always use another one.  I saw one similar to this, that was done in pastel flowers, very cute.

Or make and give as quick gifts, door prizes for quilt guilds, quilt shows, favors for tea's or swaps.

This needlebook is a batik lovers friend.

Here is the inside.  It has 4 pages for needles and pins.

Happy Scraping and Stitching,

My Skinny Pinny Pincushion

I finished my Skinny Pinny and mailed it last week to my partner in UT.
The skinny pincushion is filled with walnut shells and Lavender and made with jelly rolls and vintage lace.  The hot pad or mug rug is made with jelly rolls and then hand embroidered bird design from Gail Pan and has hot pad batting inside.  You can make these with candy bars also.
