Needlebooks, Safes, Folds and Tidies

I love to think of new accessories for stitchers as I am as much as stitching addict as you are! I cannot face my lovely gold plated needles stuck in to a bit of old cardboard or old felt - I need a pretty case or something similar.
I think a needlebook is self explanatory but I have had fun creating other needle places so I have grouped them in this section.
Needle Tidies were inspired by old Shaker pincushion and are made as a flat square with a folded hem and have a little pad inside.
Needle Safes started out as little self lined band samplers and are stitched on 28-count linen band so there are no folded hems.
Needlefolds were also originally band samplers that got converted!
