Hexie Needle Book

When I’m not whipping up fast crafts, I like to do a little sewing. Recently, I had the chance to teach English Paper Piecing to some friends of mine. We were hand-stitching hexagons together, so I made them each a little needle book to hold their hand needles. These needle books are simple to make, and are a great gift for anyone who likes to sew!

Cut two felt hexagons using the die and machine. Then cut 2-3 fabric hexagons.

Layer the fabric hexies between the two felt hexies. Put under the sewing machine. Stitch a zig-zag stitch down one side. Go back-and-forth at the beginning and end of the seam to secure.

  1. How do you keep the fabric pages from fraying?
