This clever storage box for sewing machine needles is an easy DIY project. Plus, it’s well thought out and will easily keep your needles organized and handy.
Each needle type and size has it’s own space, with the needle’s specs right there for easy reference. Thin magnets provide storage for used needles, as well. The box is perfect for Schmetz needles but can easily be adapted for other needle brands, as well.
Start with a small box, like a recipe box. Print out the Schmetz Needle Guide, print it on full-sheet sticky-backed paper to create labels, and add magnets to each pocket for used needles.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
