ANOTHER PROJECT FINISHED
Yipppeee, I have finished another needlebook. This is one I have really enjoyed making. The original fabric had been sent to me. I cut some "windows in the fabric and inserted another fabric
in the space. Onto this fabric I added different elements: some threads, some
other fabric and then covered them with organza and secured the lot with free machine stitching.
To make the needlebook I lined the fabric with some batting and then some fabric I had in my stash. I made a cord to finish the edges and used some pink felt to accomodate needles. The edges looked a bit bland so I stitched on some lace that I had dyed some time ago. This seemed to finish it off nicely. To fasten the "book" I made a cord on my machine and that just completed the project.
Now to finish the ironing!!!!
