My friend is celebrating her birthday today. I didn’t know what I wanted to get her. Then I remembered a t-shirt I’d seen and it inspired me…
careful, or you’ll end up in my novel.
So last night after dinner I gathered together my materials. Felt, linen and a pretty fat quarter. I’m not much at making patterns so this was a really a seat of my pants endeavor. Embroidery last night, sewing this morning.
This is a little notebook cover. A composition notebook tucks inside. It is lined with linen and has a sewn in bookmark. The cover is embroidered bamboo felt. Miss R drew the little person for me. I love how she can get so much expression into such a simple figure.
I like the bamboo felt. It is much much nicer than polyester felt that you find at the craft stores and much cheaper than wool felt. So, it’s a good type to keep on hand. I got mine through A Child’s Dream Come True. They have a beautiful selection of all types of felt.
