OPAM 2012 Felty Floral Finish

This is my latest felt book/journal cover which will go into my Etsy shop or can be purchased directly through Paypal if you send me your email address plus free P&P if you live in the UK..
  It fits a A6 hard backed notebook or journal and is removeable so can be transferred to another book.
All of the flowers are hand cut and I used a nice large blue brad in the centre plus blue felt and a zingy lime green.
Plenty of hand stitching for added detail.
Running stitch and chain stitch are two of my favourites as they are strong and show up well on a project like this.
A label added on the inside.
An ideal spring gift or a treat for yourself.  I use them for project notes and I do have several which you could say were the prototypes when I first came up with the designs ideas for my book covers.
These designs can easily be enlarged for bigger notebooks or journals.
April OPAM is off to a good start.
What do you think of this design?  I love making these and I think that the feel of the felt has a lot to do with it.  Great colours and quite a tactile finish once made up.
