How to Make a Needle Book

How to Make a Needle Book

Learn how to make an easy and inexpensive needle book. You can also add a “pocket” to hold your scissors and thread. This is a great project for beginner sewers – learn to sew a straight line while making a case for your new tools!

If you are scout leader or work with a youth group, this is a good activity (cheap and quick) to share. No kids to work with? You already have a needle book? Well, this little case can hold all kinds of thing such as charger cords, pens & pencils, clipped coupons….. You can turn it into a first aide kit or give it as a gift with a special gift card inside.

Hope you decide to make our needle book! Please share our video with your friends.  THANKS!!!
