Make Heirloom Needle Boxes and Cases for the Holidays

More great things I got at Market in Houston. I bought these Needleboxes, Etc. kits to make Needle Boxes for gifts. I love these boxes.....they are just so cool. Can you imagine the impression made when giving one of these in someones favorite fabrics? I know I would do back flips (by the way...I like green:)
I love the way this one folds out and there are more places for needles inside. You can even label them so you know where each type of needle is stored.

This is a fun little carry all needle book for classes or carrying with your projects.

Here is another cool box. I really like how the extra sides fold down and there are even more sides revealed.

This Prism makes a very neat decoration and it also holds your sewing supplies. Very cool indeed. When the boys get a little older, I'm going to have stuff like this all over my house. I love these beautiful conversation starters. I know my Mother-in-Law loves these things too. Her computer is down so I can talk about this and she'll never know. She loves hand made Christmas gifts.

This heart one is interesting. I'm not a heart person but I still liked how this one opened to expose all the different sides.

What is your favorite? Would you love getting one of these as a gift? I'd be interested to hear.

By the way, they are all available at I Have A Notion.


  1. They are all wonderful and unique! I like last two the best :)

  2. I Love the first one and had a pattern to make one.It was in a magazine years ago and I have no idea where it is filed. LOL Hope that you are feeling better.

  3. Wow, they are all so unique! I think the prism would be really cool. :-)

  4. Hi there..Love these little items. I have made a couple of them.
    I always enjoy my visit here.. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Please take time out to pop over to my blog and enter my give away to celebrate my Bloboversary

  5. I used to have a patchwork shop and sold these kits some 20 years ago and loved them. I still have the samples on a shelf in my studio

  6. I really like the first one...those are really neat!!

  7. Ohh I love them all, but the first one is my favourite!

  8. Yes, Kelly I would love to recieve on of these boxes! I especially like the four and six sided ones. Might have to try one of these but will have to wait till after Christmas gifts get made.


  9. WOW! I just love them! I have never seen anything like them here in Australia. I want them all LOL! especially the Prism one:)


  10. These boxes are like artwork, not what I'd consider as typical needle or accessories boxes. Amazing. And I do believe they'd make a delightful Christmas gift. But then a Christmas Tree decorated with these boxes would also be delightful!
