Here she brings us a free tutorial of how to make a Scrappy Needle Keeper. That’s the sort of ‘bag’ every sewer needs. She makes it using scraps and bits of fabric and it’s super easy and great for beginners. It also makes a cute gift idea for a friend who sews or quilts. Or handy to carry some pins for a sewing on the go project.
So if you have a lot of scraps hanging around then this is the project for you. You’ll use the quilt as you go or foundation piecing technique to make your very own Scrappy Needle Keeper.
