On the first Friday of each month, I get together with a group of wonderful sewing friends for a night of sewing, laughter, and fun. This month, I didn't have a project in progress so grabbed a few supplies as I headed out the door. I have been wanting to make a needlebook ever since I saw the beautiful Needlebook tutorial by Amy from Nana Company.
It was fun to combine some pretty scraps into the patchwork backing.
I appliquéd a heart onto the front of the cover, and added some perle cotton stitching in a pretty shade of pale pink.
I love how Amy had decorated her felt "pages". It was a lovely way to incorporate some special trim and bias binding that I bought on my last trip to Japan.
It was fun working with such pretty fabrics. I am sure they will be making an appearance in another project soon.
If you are looking for some sewing inspiration, I can recommend the Needlebook Tutorial from Nana Company. All Free Sewing have also published a list of the top sewing tutorials for 2012, including our Gathered Round Basket tutorial.
