Pink Gingham Needlebook
I wanted to make my future daughter in law something for the wedding. I have been to so many weddings where somebody needed straight pins, bobbie pins, safety pins, etc. So I thought I would put this all together in a cute way and give it to her.
I took pink fabric and sewed it in a rectangular shape, filled it with a thin sheet of batting. Then I used white felt to sew a couple pockets on and made another page to put the needles and pins in. Sewed a couple of buttons to it and ribbons, it turned out cute. I also put some self adhesive velcro in the little pockets to hold things together.
The one thing nice about using the pink felt for the pockets, is that they didn't need to be lined or formed. You just cut the felt in the shape you want and then you sew it on. Ta Da! I love it. I want to make one for myself.
I made the see through pocket out of fabric from the ring bearer pillows I made for the wedding. It is sparkly and sheer.
I also am going to put some extra buttons in there just because they are cute and they match the needle book!
Lastly I sewed a pretty pink heart on the front and then tied a green bow on to keep it closed. My son gets married in a week and a half, wahhhh. But his bride to be is a doll! Thank the Lord!!!
Have a blessed day. Debbie
