Creative Friday and an Autumn Sewing Needle Saver Tutorial

Welcome to Creative Friday.

Today I am posting a craft that I shared on Rhythm of the Home online Magazine previously. It is for a knitted needle saver with an autumn theme. It could be any theme really, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter etc… just change the colours and the felt motif on the front and there you go.



DK Merino yarn, I have used a naturally dyed yarn that has been dyed with Peach Bracket Mushrooms.

4mm straight knitting needles.

Wool sewing needle

Embroidery needle




Pinking Shears



Cast on 30 stitches.

Knit 5 rows of garter stitch.

Row 6: Knit 5 stitches, purl 20 stitches, knit 5 stitches.

Row 7: Knit

Alternate rows 6 and 7 twelve times finishing on a purl row.

Knit 5 rows of garter stitch.

Cast off

Sew in all the ends with a wool needle.


 If you would like to make your folder lie flat, just block it on a piece of felt. To block, dampen and pin into position and allow to dry.

Cut a piece of cotton material with a pinking shears to fit just inside of your knitted cover. Cut it slightly smaller.

Sew the liner onto the knitted cover with thread.


Cut a piece of yellow felt to stitch into your sewing book. Sew along the left side to secure into the sewing book.


Draw an Oak Leaf onto a piece of yellow felt and cut it out. Sew along the main vein of the leaf with dark cotton.


Sew the Oak Leaf onto the front of the needle book cover.
