So here is the main photo (with my Daughters leg in as she helped(?) to pack the box and take the photos) I was really pleased to have used 7 different techniques/types of crafting (who knew I had such a broad repotoire!) I put in a couple of my felties and some jewellery that I’d made recently. The necklace was one I made to demonstrate at the jewellery party that I’d planned to give to the birthday girl but she didn’t really like purple and had the brown “coca cola” neckace I’d made to show that the brown beads were quite nice really! If it stays in the box and is there when the box gets back to me at Christmas, I’ll be quite happy to give it a home myself!
I’ve done a few close up photos so I can tell you more. I love making covers for note books and had every intention to do one last time around but didn’t get round to it. Originally the stitching was going to be a biscornu but when I went to sew up the squares, they weren’t square! Miscounting I hear you cry, but no I counted each side about a dozen times and it appears that in my stash I have a piece of aida where the aida blocks are not square. (frustrating) Anyway rather than do nothing with it I sewed it to the felt and made this little book cover which could be put on to another A6 notebook when that one is full.
