Sewing Notebook


Hi I have been making this today. Using some fabric I picked up on a shopping trip with my sister.



It has lots of pockets for storing all those little notes.



 And some dividers.


 I used the Tim Holtz set Mini Blueprints I had problems finding this in stock anywhere. I found it at the Artistic Trading Post in the end, and it arrived the next day, great customer service.

I really enjoyed making this, it was nice to glue, stick and fold for a change and I didn't get messy at all, it will make a change to go to bed with my hands the same colour as they were when I got up.

 Think I will make some more now to pop into my shop.

 I have uploaded this to the Eclectic Paperie Get Altered Challenge - Altered Fabric

Thanks for visiting, Carol x
