August NFSAL by Mattsma August NFSAL by Mattsma
My daughter wanted to make a little sewing kit to carry with her when she travels around to furcons across the US.  She had this cute little cigarillo box that I gave her 6 or 7 years ago, we bought her some super tough thread, I painted a pair of trusty embroidery scissors and using the August NFSAL pattern created by Magical525 I made this sweet little needlebook to match her sweet little cigarillo box.

The fabric is more of that badly made stuff I have in ABUNDANCE, but it is super great to practice hand dying.  This is from a small batch of yellow evenweave.  The floss is some super awesome "Oops" floss from MadX-Stitcher's Etsy Store, MilesMadXStitcher.   I seriously LOVE oops floss and I've had this for awhile and it was PERFECT for this project.

Magical525 and   Mattsma have come up with a way for you to use that neglected floss you have laying around.  For some of you, it probably bothers you just a tiny bit that you have these flosses that never get used or there is just a tiny bit left of some specialty floss that you may never use again in a pattern so here is the best way to ensure you use every  one of them at least once, or finish them off entirely!  Gifted floss, those bobbins that sit quietly in your floss boxes, bags, or drawer never getting used or are forgotten…oh yes, we have something fun
