If you embroider or cross-stitch, you might already be using a magnetic needle holder to keep track of your needle! They are cute little accessories for needlework and hand quilting and I love seeing all the fun designs that people come up with. Great little gifts; I have a list of the best needle minders from independent shops and then a few ideas for how to make needle minders. Let me know if you are familiar with any of these shops or tried any of the needle minder DIY tutorials!
I usually just stick my needle through the excess fabric but lately I’ve been thinking about trying a needle minder after accidentally dropping my needle and wasting time trying to find it with this gadget. See what tools I do always use already, in this post of my top hand embroidery tools!
Please pin this collage of cute magnetic needle holders with this link and image, not the individual photos:
