|Closed Sewing Kit|
|Open Sewing Kit|
As I seemed to be forever borrowing sewing needles from the ladies at work, these little kits seemed appropriate.
I just folded a long strip of textured white card three times (to make four panels) - up then down then up again to make an accordion.
I added paper to the back panels, securing a ribbon under the end one (which becomes the front of the book) so that it can be tied around the book to keep it closed.
On the other side I added little pieces of felt secured with split pins to sticky backed magnets to hold needles and pins, and a little pocket to hold a bobbin shaped piece of card wound with three different colours of cotton.
They won't last forever but don't take too long to make and are very functional - just a nice size to slip in your handbag (or desk drawer for the next time some annoying person like me wants to borrow a needle or pin!)
