When you sew there are different needles to use depending on which fabric you’re using. If you choose the wrong needle it can make your stitches skip, bobbin thread tangle, or totally ruin your fabric.
Some needles are color coded, but honestly that paint seems to wear off before the needle is no longer usable. There are also charts out there that will tell you which needle to use and why each one is different, but unless you have a magnifying glass handy it can be tough to figure out just how the end of the needle is shaped.
Enter the Needle Organizer Pincushion. Using different types of fabric to represent the storing place for each type of needle eliminates the guess work. Faux suede is where the microtex needles are stored, swimsuit fabric is where the stretch needles are stored, leather for leather, denim for denim, etc. Customize the pincushion with the type of fabrics you work with most often and you’ll have the needle you need right at your fingertips instead of shoved in a drawer or buried under the pins.
The best part is that this is a great stash busting pattern too!
