I’ve made a lot of craft projects over the years, but there are a few that remain absolute favourites.
Back in 2012 I designed and made this vintage look needle book.
I still use it every week in my studio.
It appeals to me on many levels… it’s got a shabby, vintage time worn vibe, which I love.
It is both functional and practical. I like having a page for every type of needle, so I can always find exactly what I need.
It holds a lot, but is still small enough to be portable and easily thrown into my sewing bag for travelling or crafting play dates.
There are even handy pockets inside for scissors and threads.
For the past five years, this has been one of my most popular E-patterns sold in my Boutique…
But now I am offering it here for you as a free project.
It would be a perfect handmade gift for that creative friend or family member. I’ve made a few of these needle books for gifts and they are always greatly appreciated.

The tutorial and pattern for this project is quite detailed, so I’ve broken them up into 2 PDF files that you can download to your own computer.
For your convenience, I’m providing affiliate shopping links to the products I used:
Rhinestone and pearl button from Etsy. I love these buttons!
I hope you enjoy making and using this needle book as much as I have.
If you’d like a run down on the different types of sewing needles, see my post here.
