How to make a needle book

I recently received some supplies from Canvas Corp and Gauche Alchemy and decided to mix them up a little bit and see what I come up with.

In the past I have made my own ‘fabric’ designs by using stamps.  This time I decided to use paint and punchinella and try to stencil.

Cut the canvas to strips of 3″ x 6″.  Use ribbon and lace to embellish and stitch on your sewing machine.

Use alphabet stamps and tiny strips of muslin and stamp the word ‘needles’.

Cut strips of felt the same size and line them up.  Add strips of ribbon on the short ends.  These will help you tie up your needle book.

Back on the sewing machine stitch all the way around the edges.

And you are done!
