Here is a small project that I made to replace one that I made when I was a little girl...
Aww! A simple stitched needle book with appliqued decoration.
Now I am going to make a quilted back and hand embroidered front needle book.
Check out how I made it below
Make some small squares out of your fabric
Start to sew them together in rows
Then sew the rows together
Make a square that is the same size as your patched square and also a length for the middle part
Stitch them together
Then start to decorate the front of your needle book. I added an appliqued heart and embroidered writing
Get some wadding and pin behind your fabric
Then I quilted the patchwork
Cut the wadding around the fabric. Then good sides toegther pin in place.
Add a small ribbon loop for your button hole on the inside.
Sew around the edges leaving a small gap to turn the right way round. Trim your corners off at angles. Turn it the right way round. Sew the gap closed. Add a button to the front side.
