Needle Book Sewing Pattern

free sewing pattern needle book

This is a free sewing pattern for a needle book. I always search for my different sized sewing needles and decided to sew a ‘home’ for all of them. It is very easy to sew this needle book with this photo tutorial.


2 different colored fabrics for the outer fabric and for the lining.I used 2 pieces Tilda Fabrics 50 cm x 70 cm   =   20 inches x 28 inches.

Blue felt fabric for the ‘book pages’: 2 pieces 20 cm x 30 cm  =  8 inches x 12 inches.

Sewing thread in blue and red.

1 snap button

Finished Size   Width: 22 cm/7½ inches      Height: 11 cm  4½ inches.

Decoration  This is optional. Here I used a crochet motif and a button.

 Free Sewing Pattern

Cut 1 piece of fabric for the outer fabric(floral) and 1 piece for the lining(dotted) :  26 cm x 25 cm  =  10 1/4 inches x 10 inches.


Cut 2 pockets in felt fabric: 5 cm x 9 cm  =  2 inches x 3½ inches.

Cut 2 ‘book pages’ each 17 cm x 21 cm  =  6 3/4 inches x 8 1/4 inches.


Sew the pockets by hand on top of the lining with red sewing thread and chain stitches. Place the snap button between the pockets and sew it onto the fabric. Place the other part of the snap button on the opposite side and sew onto the fabric.

Sew the dotted button and the crochet motif to the outer fabric.


Place the 2 book pages in the middle of the lining and sew onto the lining with the sewing machine.


 Pin the lining to the outer fabric and sew it with the sewing machine in blue thread.

You now have a sewing needle book for all those little and big needles. One could adapt the pattern and make it smaller. See the open needle book below.
