15+ cute magnetic needle holder ideas

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! Please note a few of the images in the header/pin have since sold out so they don’t appear below!

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!

If you’re looking at these for gift ideas, consider pairing one with a cute modern hand embroidery kit, too! Need a project idea? Check out this list of halloween cross stitch patterns!
