Here’s a handy project for all you sewers out there, either for you or to give as a gift to another sewer or quilter. Have you ever changed out needles in your machine, or worked with several needles only to loose track of which is which type or size? This sewing wallet includes a handy chart to keep track of all your needles. It features an outer zip pocket that is divided by the fold of the pouch and is secured by an elastic closure. It also has a convenient handle for easy carrying.
When you open out the pouch, there is room for your sewing needles to be stored and organised. The pattern includes an option for either a hand needle chart or a sewing needle chart. Both charts have a blank row to write your own type of needle if one you have is not listed. The bottom features zippered vinyl pockets so that you can place small items like sewing machine needles into the pockets without fear of them falling out and getting lost.
An ideal on the go bag for a quilter or for taking to retreats and quilt groups.
Finished size – The pouch measures 7 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches high when closed. When opened, it measures 7 1/2 inches wide by 10 1/4 inches high.
You can buy the pattern pieces and needle chart prints on the Birdcage and Thread website for a dollar, or improvise your own.
