Cookie Needle Book

Inspired by a notions swap, I baked up a cute little chocolate chip cookie needle book!  You could easily change the pattern to suit whatever flavor cookies you like:  chocolate sandwich cookies, sugar cookies, etc.


Worsted Weight Yarn, Small amounts of Tan and Brown
3.5 / E crochet hook
Sewing machine or hand sewing supplies

Pattern note:  2scinc means do 2 sc in the same stitch to increase by 1

Cookies (make 2):
Working in a spiral without joining, starting with tan:
Magic Loop
6 sc in loop (6 sc)
2scinc around (12 sc)
[sc, 2scinc] repeat around (18 sc)
[sc, sc, 2scinc] repeat around (24 sc)
[sc, sc, sc, 2scinc] repeat around (30 sc)
[sc, sc, sc, sc, 2scinc] repeat around (36 sc)
Finish Off.  Sew in ends.
Embroider chocolate chips using brown yarn.


Using template, cut two pieces of felt.
Hand or machine sew two felts together along the center line.
Glue or sew outside felt pages to wrong side of cookie pieces.


Voila!  Now you have a cookie needle book!

Jayne Cobb Hat Lip Balm Cozy

I came late to Firefly fandom.  Initially, the name of the series and the western themes didn’t appeal to me, but I was eventually convinced, against my stubborn nature, to give the show a try.  And WOW!  I was completely hooked.  As a small tribute to fans of the short-lived series, I adapted Kristy Ashmore’s Lip Balm Cozy into a Jayne Cobb hat.  It’s a great, quickie gift for the super geek in your life.  Not a fan of lip balm?  The hat can also be used as a pencil topper or ornament.


Download the pattern for free on Ravelry.  And special thanks to Kristy for permission to post this variation of her original pattern.
