How can it be 25th Jan already! Luckily I have been working diligently on my cross stitch items to make little Christmas presents for the ladies at my quilting group.
I was able to make up a finished piece into a needle book to show off today. It is so useful to have the 1 Xmas Item a Month group again this year. It gives me just the right amount of motivation without feeling I have to submit an item every time. Thanks Narelle.
|With the front cover closed I cut two pieces 1/4 inch wider.|
|Stitch all around, clip the corners and turn through the gap in the spine.|
|Stitch the gap by hand.|
|I stitched close to the cross stitch on the front then did a square on the back as well, then stitched in the felt pages.|
There is a list of Christmas elves participating on the right side bar of Narelle's blog.
