    I have been sewing a lot of different types of things lately and it seems like I'm changing my needles several times a day. sometimes the needles are reusable sometimes not. A friend gave me a little crocheted bown with hard candies and I got this idea of what to do with it when the candies were all gone. I can put reusable needles in a marked spot (lots of space for more spots if I need them) hide dead needles in the crochet base and packages of needles in the little box on top. This is just a mach up and I'm sure it could be made much prettier but I think it will work out great.

    this is so functional.... however, I am concerned about "hiding the dead needles in the crochet base"
    Is there some way of having a section for dead needles? or maybe a hidden pocket or maybe a false bottom between the fabric part and the crochet part????

    Maybe I am taking the " hide" to literal?

    love the fabric choice!

    loving it - especially the center part for holding packaged needles - mine are never where I left them.

    I have the base very densly stuffed with batting scraps. If they start to migrate I will re-think that aspect. The main thing is needles that can be used again are 'findable' and in the same area and as accessible as new ones.
