I saw this sweet little needlebook tutorial by Amy at nanaCompany


Thought I would have a go...

I kinda did less - in fact none - of the hand sewing bit,

but it still looks good.

My clever machine does a back stitch which gives a nice finish similar to hand sewing.

I love all the little details, especially to the inside , which I have not pictured but if you click on the link you will see what I mean.

Amy also has a sweet little project in the Zakka Style book that I am quite into at the moment.

I also made up the little Belle and Boo Needlebook
that was a freebie with the Mollie Makes magazine recently...

I do like the simplicity of this idea...

It is a printed card with very sweet picture on the front, just like a gift tag really.
Fold in half and sew a piece of felt into the inside down the fold.

There were little slits at the edge to thread the ribbon through.

I used a scallop cutter instead of pinking shears to cut the edge of the felt which is a little trick I learned from following Amy's tutorial - Thank you.
