Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Have a look at the photo of the travelling needle case I made a year ago. I was tired of sorting through all my little cases looking for the right needle.  I made ties on the sides so it will roll up for taking to classes - but then I added a strip of velcro to the top so it hangs on the wall beside my sewing machine.  It is such a time saver and very easy to make.

What a great idea. What did you make it out of?

Made from a remnant of raw silk because it was loosely woven to allow the needles to move easily.  Then stitched 2" x 2" squares for each type/size.

I love it!

This is a very good idea, I would like to make one. 

Brilliant!!  I love this :)

I'm still using it and love it - although I may make a new one with fewer splits as I realize I don't use some of the varieties ever.  I have titanium because they are supposed to last longer - but I manage to break them anyway so why bother.

An added plus for me was putting velcro on the back and also on the side of the bookcase right beside  my machine, so it is hanging on the wall out of the way but in plain sight.  I should post a picture of that I suppose.
