Friday Finish: Needlebooks

I signed up for a needlebook swap, but I wanted to make something a little different than just a teeny little needlebook with felt pages. Not that they aren't adorable. I just wanted something, well, more.

I discovered this pattern by Aneela Hoey. Lucky me, she was having a sale too! I thought it was darling and perfect for what I wanted to make. And here she is. Actually, I made two. One for me!

After a little partner stalking, I decided on some Geometric Bliss for her and I love how it turned out.

This one is actually mine, but hers is identical. I especially love that little tulip pocket and the text fabric on the front. I made sure "Tuesday" was front and center. It's my lucky day. I got married on a Tuesday!

And then I wanted to make two more as gifts for some good friends. So here they are:

Checking these off the 2QFAL list. And I got mine shipped off just in time. Hope it gets there by Monday!


  1. These are adorable! that little zippered pocket would be so handy. I'm sure your partner will be thrilled!

  2. Awesome! They look great!

  3. Really cute. Lucky swap partner!

  6. Some one will love receiving these needle cases. Well done. I'm visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
