Needle Keeper (Tutorial)

I was at Walmart the other day and I saw a "Needle Nest".

Since my "travel" sewing needle usually goes in with my straight pins, I thought it looked like a neat idea but simple enough to make myself.

I dug around and found a cute little container and one of the magnetic sports calendars I'd gotten from the kids' doctor office.

Since my magnet had writing on the back, I cut a piece of colored paper to cover it.

All done!  I may put something on the pink paper at some point, but it's nice this way, too.

And it's functional for keeping the needles in place ☺

I didn't glue or tape the magnet in place, it's just a tight enough fit that it stays in place.

Good idea, now to make sure you put it back in there each time after using it.

That really is a super idea. Thanks for sharing it with us.
