Now last Monday I made the cutest little needle books ever. I loosly followed the tutorial from My Three Sons Knit . The link for her tutorial is at the bottom of the page. Just because I want you to see mine before you blog hop :)
I had been browsing walmart and found the neatest little clasps for about $2.50 for a 2 pack.
After looking at the tutorial and getting some felted wool from my LQS I browsed through my fabric and got to work. I used my 1 1/2" hexagon template that I use for the Japanese flower garden quilt, fussy cut my fabric and used the same technique that is in my hexagon tutorial to make 2 hexagons for each needle book.
(you can find the Hexagon Tutorial here: http://aquiltingwewillgo.blogspot.com/search/label/Hexagon%20Tutorial )
|The clasps I got from wally mart|
|Now I took a strip of left over wool, cut a slot in the end and put it on my clasp. This way I can have my thread attached and I just tied a knot in the end of this one.|
|Here you can see the inside with a couple pins!|
|The nice thing about the clasp is that I can attach my scissors and thimble to it as well then onto a handle in my travel sewing kit.|
So definitely go check out My Three Sons Knit for her full tutorial!
