Woven Needle Books instead of Pin Cushions

One of my favorite projects in my new book, Innovative Frame Loom Weaving, is an extremely useful tool.

It’s a woven Needle Book that holds sewing needles.

Pin cushions are good for pins, but needles can get buried in them too easily.

Needle books hold sewing, darning and other craft needles safely and handily.

This video shows variations on the Needle book that I designed for the frame loom, including ones woven on the potholder loom and Weave It style pin loom.

And, also, a relative asked for a brooch that she could stick pins and needles in while mending, so there’s one of those in the video, too!

Embroidering on Hand Woven Fabric

If you would like to embellish your hand woven (or knitted or crocheted) fabric with embroidery, but aren’t quite sure how to do it, then I have some suggestions for you.

I have made a video showing one of the ways that I have figured out how to embroider on hand woven fabric- this technique will work just as well on crocheted or knitted fabric. Here’s the link to the video:
