Couch Sewing Kit

I didn't really need to make this but I kept seeing it all over blogs and loved the little patchwork. I didn't need a needle book which is what I was seeing here and there so I made a Couch Sewing Kit. That's where I mostly hand sew anything. I had all my supplies in an empty Tweezerman box but it was a mess.
The original needle book tutorial is from nanacompany.

The mushroom template is from the book From Felt to Fabulous. The grass holds my leather thimble. The bobbins are in the holes of buttonhole elastic (you know, the kind in kids pants to make them adjustable).
The felt pages are for needles and stuff. One side has a pocket for...I have no idea. Maybe embroidery floss if that's what I'm sewing at the time. I tried to think of anything I might need. Right now the pocket is holding the excess thread from the needles.
The scallop edges were made with these scissors. I had them make me a special listing for all 3 sizes (which made it a lot cheaper). I LOVE them. They cut through felt like butta.
My favorite part is the owl scissor holder.
The template is from the pattern Whimsical Woodland Sewing Set by Betz White.
The outside..
Outside is made with quilting cottons,
inside is one layer of cotton batting and one layer of Peltex (to keep it stiff because the weight of the scissors). All the felt is Holland wool felt from
