I've been working hard getting various things finished recently so I haven't had much chance to blog - even this is going to be a short one! Never mind - it's the thought that counts...
I've recently decided that one of the things I want to specialise in the shop is needle books. As well as more complicated ones like the owl and cupcake versions I want to make some simple (but pretty!) ones like this.
Isn't this fabric gorgeous? It has cute little hedgehogs all over it, and at the last minute I decided that I'd pick up on that image and embroider a little hedgehog on the inside cover. Really pleased with how it turned out! The needle book itself measures about 8cm by 6cm and is lined with felt so there is plenty of room for storing lots of needles whilst still being small enough to fit into the dinky category! It's turned out so well that although part of me wants to keep it for myself, it will be appearing in the Craft Matters Etsy shop very soon.
Of course, all it's done is make me want to do is write a crochet hedgehog pattern. Hmmm. And I'm supposed to be making needle books. I wonder if I can come up with something whilst I'm on the train to London tomorrow. A weekend of parties and friends ahead of me. Hurrah!
