I showed you the lovely pin cushion I received from Emily on Friday, but completely forgot to show you a picture of the mini needle books I made for her and Nicky...
A little Liberty Lifestyle, yarn dyed linen in denim, (oh how I love thee), JD and Aneela, and some real chunky wool felt.
I added the hooks to either attach to a small pair of scissors or to keep the needle books safe or at hand.
It took me 20 times longer playing with fabric combinations than actually sewing these up. Isn't that always the way?
They finish up at 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" folded.
I may have to make myself one too!
On a side-note before I forget, Hubby is now off work for a fortnight, so I plan to only blog every other day to make the most of family holiday time. It's pretty quiet in blogland right now anyway, so I think I am going to take advantage too. So please excuse my lack of interaction over the next couple of weeks; normal service will resume after the August Bank Holiday xxx
