Sewing Saturdays - Needle Book!

Alhamdulillaah, a dear sister and her kids from another part of the world sent Maimoonah a whole heap of sewing stuff. May Allaah reward them immensely for their generosity and kind gesture. Aameen. In fact the sister sent us all the materials we were looking for for various projects we wanted to do. You know who you are sister, please note that you and your kids have indeed brighten up our journey! And all this means so much for us. Love all of you for the sake of Allaah!

So now that we got the much needed felt materiel, we resumed our Sewing activity this Saturday. We chose to make a Needle Book to keep all the needles in tact. We got the instructions from here.

So Maimoonah chose the colours for this Project. Taught her how to measure and mark the size on the materiel. Then I cut and these are the two pieces of the felt material we would use for the Book.


We took a piece of ribbon kept it on top of one piece and kept the other piece of the felt materiel over it and pinned.


Then we used blanket stitch and stitched all the edges. I did two sides and Maimoonah did the remaining two sides.


Inside of the book!

Outside of the book!

Then the dear sister also sent us beautiful buttons. Maimoonah chose one of them and stitched here. Now the she already knew how to stitch buttons, she was pretty confident to do it.

Then we pinned all our needles and this is our final product!


Very easy and useful project masha Allaah!

Now watch out for more projects Insha Allaah as we are now blessed with resources!!!
