I recently had the thought that I used to have a ton more needles in my old tomato pincushion than I used to. I didn't remember breaking needles or putting them elsewhere. I decided to cut the old mater open and found 17 SEVENTEEN! needles that had been pushed down inside to be lost forever. I knew that I needed a better solution to storing my needles. I started researching needle books and found this cute pattern that will be a great addition to my sewing kit.
