needle book pattern underway


Update: There is a pattern available for this now: the Flora Needle Book pattern, available for instant download at Etsy and Craftsy.

Test run No. 1 from the pattern, successfully completed. It's weird making the applique from a pattern. I usually just eyeball it, but I have to admit that this will streamline the process a vast deal (as Lucy Steele might say). The pattern is written, diagrams done. Mods being made, pieces being tweaked. Many, many words being deleted. I'm always too much with the wordy words on the first draft.

  3. You mean if my needle book wears out, I'll have to make a new one myself?! Bummer!

    Nah, just kidding. I think it's great that you're making a pattern! I'm sure it'll be a great one, wordy or not. :)

    1. Grandma G, thanks a bunch! I know you are fully capable of whipping one out too! My needle book is still looking good so fingers crossed it will last a good, long time.
