    I typed this out once and my Internet froze and closed on me. So here we go again……
    I have been needing a better way to store my needles for sometime now… Well… Okay for forever! I have always kept them in a scrap piece of fabric, or as it has been recently a piece of scrap binding.
    I went to the LQS a few months back and saw a kit for a little purse thing that holds needles and a pair of scissors. I went to work on it today, after realizing, I seriously need something (lost my scrap binding, so no needles) I opened it up to find you have to glue pieces together. I don’t want to glue. So I set off to make my own.
    This is what I came up with a trifold binder book looking thing. Maybe this has been done before, maybe even a pattern out there somewhere, but its new to me and took me all afternoon and two tries to come up with a viable one.
    The inside has a pocket on each section, along with a padded strip to hold needles. I fancy small scissors, so with this I can fit three pair in. It all folds together and closes with a magnetic closure.

    Its about 4inches by 3.5 inches closed
