How about a minkie bag of embroidery thread... this one is drawstring and all my embroidery thread is in it.... well maybe not all, but what I need on hand to do my little pins... That is a machine embroidery Paw appliqued on there!
Well I am Queen of my jungle of thread and doodads
Does she have a chateline?.... you can use a cathedral window tiny block and make a pocket out of it with velcro closing and put a needle threader in it and a thimble or two... and use either a measuring tape or measuring tape ribbon velcroed around the handle of a pair of thread snippers...
This one has a wrist scrunchie with a strip of lace, so you can attach it to your wrist where you won't loose it...
You can decorate your little pocket with machine embroidery or whatever.... as my little mummy face looked like he needed some hand stitching, I put him in the center.
OR you could make armchair embroidery pockets to put your current project in so when you are watching a movie you have your embroidery you are working on with a needle ready
