If you are like me, you are always forgetting where you left that tiny, little needle... even if it was just a few minutes after "sticking it in a place so I won't forget where I put it!"
A needle book or needle case is perfect for storing my needles, and for keeping track of them... in such cute and fun ways.
I'll share a few of my favorite patterns to make a needle case, if you need some ideas .
Amanda, The Patchsmith, has lots of ideas , too, and she shares two delightful needle cases that she made, on her blog.

|I put a pinwheel on the back cover|
|It is fun to add ribbon and charms for embellishing the felt pages|
|Bird Needlecase made by Susie's Sunroom|
This is a bird that is folded up, over its tail. I thought he needed an eye, so I added a bead for a bird eye.
|His tail has felt for the needles|
|This little pair of scissors can fit under the elastic, too|
We do you hope you have found a pattern that looks fun , and you'll make your own needle case, and put it in the Across The Pond Sew Along Flickr group to share!
These needle cases/books are a lot of fun to make... you know you'll be seeing
