I used a stripy woolly sweater that has been felted in the wash to make a little needle case. The stripes are dark blue, light blue, creamy white and grey – classic and cool.
Sewn on the outside there is a piece of reclaimed trim, ribbon and a reclaimed button for closure. Approx 4½”x 3½” – 11cm x 9cm
Inside the needle book is lined in reclaimed cotton – a scrap of printed tea towel and pockets (to slip in all kinds of useful notions) made from an upcycled shirt cuff.
The ‘pages’ are dark grey and blue felt with zigzag edges.
I have a matching pin cushion that I can sell together for a combined price of £14. You can have the matching one or a different coloured one - have a look at the picture and pick one out, contact me and I'll make a special listing.
I find my own needlebook very, very useful, I’m sure that you would find one like this useful too.
I’ve plenty more at home – if you fancy any of the other ones in the last picture then just contact me and I’ll post them on Etsy for you.

My Etsy shop is full of things made from recycled, reclaimed, upcycled and repurposed materials - they are not shiny and new - there may be small signs of their previous life that add to their charm and individuality.
