100 Days on Pins and Needles

Sunbonnet Sue Needlebook 

Day 5


I wish I had a pattern to share with everyone but I honestly don't remember where I first saw this little needlebook. I tried to Google a pattern and although I found many patterns, none of them were like this one.

I don't even remember where I first saw this needlebook, I just remember thinking that it was so darn cute I just had to make my own version.  I created a pattern to make a cute little book a few years ago as a Christmas gift for a friend and this is my version of the Sunbonnet Sue Needlebook.

Since I could not find a pattern similar to the one I had made I did find some links to pictures and projects that I am happy to share with you so you can get yourself started on your own project and add your own ideas to it.

These two are my creations and adaptations of a Sunbonnet Sue needlebook.  I hope that the links I have provided will inspire someone to come up with their own creations to add to their collection.
