The needle magnet

A small but necessary project. At least for me.
Until now, I have always struggled to find a good place for my stitching needles. So I made this little fob with two neodymium magnets sandwiched in between some pieces of scrap leather.
These magnets work a treat, with just the right amount of ‘pulling power’ to make it easy to handle the needles.
