Felt Birthday Book

I has been a little while since I made a small felt book cover and my sister's birthday gave me a good reason to make another. The idea being that it could be used for anything including shopping lists or making notes at work.


I went back to my funky flowers design and added hand embroidery. I used metal brads to go in the middle of the flowers to add a little bit of texture.

I like to add a bit of interest inside the cover as well so here I added some green leaves and more hand embroidery. Blanket stitch is also a favourite and it also adds some strength to the edges.

I do have several of these already cut out so this has given me the push to finish them. I shall put them on my Folksy shop ready for Easter.

Bye for now.
