    I made this little Needle Wallet from the Nancy Halvorsen - Sew Necessary book. I'm going to use it to take all my little things to my hand quilting group each week.
    These are the things I will carry in it.

    Small scissors, pliers, Broccoli elastic, bandaids, gum, thimble, safety pin, quilting needles, needle threader, small ruler (if I can find one), a pencil, and a small pad of paper. What else do you bring with you to your hand-quilting group.

    When we buy broccoli, there is usually a fat, wide, thick elastic holding the two or three stalks together. I use it to pull a needle through. Sometimes, another quilter doesn't have pliers, and they will borrow my broccoli elastic, then bring one of their own the next week. :D

    When going to quilt classes, I always carry a little change just in case there is a soda machine around.

    Love the needle wallet.

    If you have Love's Stations they carry small rulers...

    That is so cute and a very neat job of sewing. I wear one of those rubber fingers on my index finger. Used to carry a broccoli band but lost it a few times and they decided to go live with some one else a few times. Now I just wear my red finger and it never leaves. This would make a great gift for quilters.(Kat Sews)

    This is really adorable and oh so functional! I like that part the most. I have a folding ruler I bought at a quilt store. Itis lime green plastic and folds in half for marking quarter inches. I think it originally is made for paper piecing.

    That is so creative. I had to laugh, I keep my broc elastic as well. Comes in handy for so many things.
