Free Friday: Gingham Needle Book

I have a cool new set of designs that I made for all of you!  I'll be posting a set of gingham sewing tools and accessories for your sewing room.  Today I'm posting the needle book, which is in my opinion something people don't know they need until they actually have one.  I used to keep my needles in the little plastic cases you can buy in the store (or sometimes even in the piece of cardboard they come in), and that's just a fuss to use.  Not to mention kind of ugly.

This needle book, on the other hand, is cute and handy, and because it's got a sturdy plastic canvas backbone, you're not very likely to get poked by needles when you grab it (have you ever gotten stabbed by needles when you're rifling through your sewing box?  Ouch!).

The cool thing about this set is that you can make it match your sewing room by changing the yarn colors you use.
