You know you’ve gone over the edge when you start crafting something to hold your crafting stuff. I saw a notebook on this blog that inspired me to create my own. I had been carrying my embroidery supplies in a little zippered bag, which worked well, though I usually had to dump all the contents out to find what I needed. I had also lost a needle, which I found later as it stabbed me from the couch pillow in which it had been hiding. I needed some organization!
So here it is, my embroidery book. It’s made from heavy cardboard covered with light batting and fabric, and embellished here and there with some embroidery.
Inside, there’s a pocket for my patterns, places to hold my hoop, scissors, and needle-threader, as well as a little needle book that’s removable. I also organized my embroidery floss, though I don’t have a picture of it. Now everything’s easy to find and easy to put away. And it’s pretty.
