How To Make Your Own Easy Felt Needle Book

 

How to make a felt needle book

29/11/15

Felt needle books are a fantastic easy gift to sew, so I thought it would make a perfect a gift for a good friend of mine who has just taken up sewing.

 

What You Will Need:

Felt:

2 x 20 x 9.5cm for the cover (1 is fine if your not sewing anything on your cover or don't mind the back of your sewing showing though)

Half the amount of pages you want in felt ( I used 2) in 18 x 7.5cm

Optional - Any embellishments such as buttons or ribbon, or felt scraps to decorate your cover with.

Thread

How To Make It:

First, decorate your front cover! Here's your chance to be creative. You could sew on buttons, ric rac, ribbon or even just glue on felt shapes. I used THIS embroidery pattern for mine.

Next, hide the back of your masterpiece by popping a second piece of felt on the back and sewing them together. I did that by using an overcast foot to sew a zigzag stitch over the edge of the fabric, but as near to the edge as you can would also work fine.

Take your 2 pieces of 18cm x 7.5cm felt and place them centrally inside your cover piece. Pin in place then turn it so that they are on the bottom. Sew centrally up the middle.
