* Needle Book

Posted on October 24th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery.

Cross-stitched needle book, using a monogram from a book I got from the library. I can’t seem to find the name of the book at the moment, unfortunately. It’s basically just Assisi with a multicolored instead of solid background. I grabbed all the blues and browns from my thread collection and just randomly stiched around the letter shape until it was full. Fold over the raw edges and glue a rectangle of felt inside the book as a liner. If you just glue around the edge, you can use the liner as extra needle space. I suppose you could stitch it on to make it more secure, but I’m going to wait and see how well the glue holds. Then I sewed felt pages to match. It’s got a little bead clasp to keep it closed.

    It’s about 3 inches square. How much does it cost? I made it for myself, so I’m not sure what you mean.
