More Needle Books!

SONY DSC

I don’t know if you can tell, but I am loving making these needle books!  Finding all the different images for the front covers, especially the old vintage sewing ads, makes creating these such an enjoyable experience.

Every time I think one is my favorite, I finish another one with a wonderful combination of fabrics!

I just love the soft grey greens and grey blues.  Luckily, I had some fabric already with those tones and the new remnant I bought at Hobby Lobby recently also has them.  They worked wonderfully in this book.

Each needle book has different images and a variety of fabrics used for the backs, inside covers, and as snippets within the needle book pages.  I used some of the new fabrics I just got recently in these needle books.

They also each have different buttons sewn in, some straight pins, a safety pin or two, and any other embellishments that struck me as interesting to add in.

There are also some blank pages for you to add your own favorites in, whether it is an old button from a favorite top or your-now-adult child’s favorite toddler outfit, maybe it’s a scrap of fabric that you loved, or a piece of ribbon that was tied to a special gift.

More pictures and measurements of each book can be found in my Etsy shop.

These are so cute, Kathy! I love the image with the girl and dog, and the little button accents are fun too.
Great job, no wonder you're having such fun.
