Sew and Sew - Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin

Design: part of Sew and Sew (an old freebie)
Designer: Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 28 count evenweave

I stitched this for Goldie on the Friends Through Threads blog. Our theme was 'Needlework' and I thought this design fitted it to a 'T'.

I decided to experiment and make a needlebook in a way I'd never tried before. I wasn't quite as smooth as I anticipated, but I think it worked out okay in the end, and Goldie loved it, which is the important thing.

I used the ingredients above - card, fabric, felt, eyelets and ribbons - and made a 'loose leaf' needlebook, so hopefully it can be added to if useful. It's all tied together with a big bow

I also sent Goldie some goodies, following on the ribbon theme :o)
