Wool Felt Needle Folder

All of the sewing I've been doing for Silver Bella swaps, have necessitated a needle holder I can carry around, moving from one working place to another. I've got supplies all over the place and want to feel more organized. Anyway, I've seen so many cute little felt folders and wanted to make one for myself.

The cover for this project was an actual pocket from a wool jacket I cut apart and washed/felted.

I wanted to use it as is; so cut it off the jacket with pinking shears. Then, I hand stitched on all the other pieces--tiny pockets and pages.

I've customized it to have room for some little tools I use--a little needle threader, a seam ripper, pockets inside the front and back covers, and labels on the pages to help me remember exactly what type of needle to use.

More needle threaders....

Now, that's out of my system, it's forward to the actual sewing/embroidery.
