Pins and Needles Book Sew Along: Weeks 1 and 2


We are stitching up my new Pins and Needles Book pattern together this month, and it's been so fun seeing all the different styles and details that everyone is using! If you want to join in, all you need is to share photos of your completed needle books on Instagram with the hashtag #pinsandneedlesSAL and you'll be entered to win, now through August 4.

Read on to see what I’ve been sewing and to see our SAL winners for weeks 1 and 2!

I used 3/4" sided hexagons for this EPP needle book, and with 22 hexagons, it was just right for a weekend project!

The front slip pocket fits a little notebook so I can keep notes when designing patterns. I'm constantly losing little slips of paper with my scrawled out measurements, so this should *fingers crossed* help keep me organized! I added a hexagon and ribbon to one of the felt pages and I love those sweet ladybugs on the zipper pocket!

I also posted this video, which shows how to measure and join bias binding to perfectly fit your needle book (or any small project!):

And now for the winners of Weeks 1 and 2...

Elnora @elnorac and Lori @lorimillerdesigns chose the winners and also provided fabulous prizes for Week 1!

This amazing Liberty needle book is delightful—from the circle appliques to the French knots, I love every little thing about it. Stef's work is impeccable!

How sweet is this adorable starry pouch? I love the darling details and that touch of linen on the back! Lindsay's makes are always so whimsical!
