Needles are pesky little critters – they always seem to be wandering off. But not if you make up a porte-aiguilles or needle holder. Chez Mounette has a chart and instructions for doing just that. And, while the blog is in French, the photos are all you need to figure out how to make one of your own. This would be a handy item to have in your sewing kit, but would also be great to make for gifts.
