A photo of my 4 favourite needle minders. The fox is current favourite for small to mid size hand held projects, because it is light and has a low profile. The teapot is also good for these projects and is currently the oldest of my needle minders (over 20 years old). The thistle is too heavy to use unless the project is on a frame but it also does a great job holding the pattern. The sheep is probably my favourite since the wool lets you dig the needle in as well for extra security.

I use a small unicorn that I love. I haven't lost a needle since I started using it and would encourage everybody to consider using them.

I used a great little needle minder called 'Needle Park Avenue' they are plastic. They have a strip to hold the needle and along the top an area to write your symbols - which you wash off when you are finished and re-use them.  On the back they have a metal strip and a back plate with magnets which you place on the underside of the fabric to hold the needle minder in place. I brought them at Coleshill Accessories.

I ended up making some from charms I liked, glued a magnet to the back and done.

Sorry totally almost forgot. Here are a few of my needle minders I made. All I did was find a few charms I liked (helped they were all on sale), magnet buttons (tried the strips and didn't work) and some craft glue , think it was the E3000 or something like that. And go figure I can't upload a pic from my iPad *rolls eyes*. Ok give me another second to get another picture lol.

I use a different one for each project, there are more but they are being used at the moment. I am always looking at the jewelry section in the craft stores for charms but so far nothing has jumped out at me.
