I decided to use some of my recently dyed fabric for the lining of this needle book. Using the sewing machine I attached a layer of batting to the back of the lining: a bit of freestyle quilting.
Then I attached the lining and wadding to the piece of patchwork. With the right sides together I stitched along three sides and then turned the piece in the right way ( a bit like a pillow case).
This is how it looks on the outside at present. Still quite a lot of embellishment needed. Once that is done I will hand stitch the open end and add some felt for the leaves of the book.
I am hoping to finish this tomorrow so I can start on something else.
