Needle Keeps

I have taken a fun facination with needle keeps lately for some reason....
I am making a project from and old quilt and got the idea to make me some Shabby Chic needle keeps..
I love them and how they look

This one is done match book style

and as you can see will hold a few special needles
that you can tuck away in your smaller kits
to carry along with you

This one is so darling, spiffed up with some fancies

And it has pages to hold them all seperately
for your different needs
but is still small enough to carry along

I recieved a needle keep as a gift awhile back and must say..
I just loved it and Iuse it often
Love my little quilted keeps
Happy Needleworks

Hi DeeDee:
One can never have enough of them! I love mine, too.
Hope you have a cozy, creative weekend.

You are one clever lady! I like those lil needle purses, and your flur de lis cannisters are outstanding! What a great idea.

Very sweet, DeeDee. funny, I was just sorting through needles this week. couldn't believe how many I had in so many places, and yet I can't ever find just the right one for the purpose. I found the felt needle keep that I made in 4th grade for 4H and won a blue ribbon in the fair! Still not sure what to do with all those needles!
