Ever wondered what needle was in your sewing machine? I have the perfect solution – a needle organiser pad. These unique pads were designed and printed by Meg Leach at New Threads. I have purchased and made several over the years for myself and friends.
Each time you set a new needle into your sewing machine, insert the daisy-headed pin into the appropriate section of the needle organiser pad. Or if you use a specialist needle for a short time and want to keep it for another time, don’t worry about re-inserting into your pack of brand new needles, place this part-used needle in the section of the needle organiser pad ready for the next time you want to use that particular type.
Two friends from Franklins Patchwork & Quilting group expressed an interest and I have made them up as gifts. I used scraps left over from the reversible apron project. To stiffen the reverse and prevent the pin from exiting at the back of the pad, I used two sheets of card from the boxes of my cat’s favourite Whiskas and then ensured that all the padding was in front of the card.
