This is the second needle book in the last week. This is the one that will be sent off to my secret swap partner in the Simple and Sweet Swap. I used some scraps of Heath and a bunch of Kate Spain bits and pieces. The felt is a lovely wool felt in a soft grey. The wool felt makes beautiful needle book pages because the felt has lots of structure. Nice. I won't show you all the pages but know that every page is embellished. That's the fun part! Once again this is from the Nana and Company tutorial but I bound the edges on this one too and added the inside pocket. I made my own covered button for the closure. I love making covered buttons!
Now I just have to add all the other bits and pieces and get this ready to mail!
Looks cute! I'm completely undecided about what to make for that swap! I mean, yes, needlebook, but.... I've just got no ideas.ReplyDelete
This is too cute. I may have to make one for myself...or join a swap.ReplyDelete
Another lucky swap person will love this one!ReplyDelete
So, has that husband of yours been baking or cooking up something delicious lately?
This is so pretty! I've been seeing so many cute ones, I have to make one soon! I have a question. I am doing some journal covers that I want to use fabric buttons on. My experience with button use is zero. Doesn't the shank on the back make it stick out far from the fabric?ReplyDelete
Gorgeous, I am sure it will be loved. Handmade presents are always the best.ReplyDelete
Very cute. Any tips on doing binding on such a small project?ReplyDelete
Love it! I really must make one for myself. I love how you've embellished all the pages!ReplyDelete
