Some of you might remember this little linen needle book which I made a while ago, it proved quite popular, so I thought I would whip up another one.
Upcycled Linen Needlebook
I get a bit bored repeating designs however, so I put pen to paper and came up with a new version;
An appliqued sewing machine with a little pin cushion!
Raw edge applique is one of my favourite techniques and I love how a little bit of black stitching really brings a design to life
If you look really carefully, you can even make out the words 'Needle-book' on the printed fabric;
This fabric is part of the Sew Retro range by Makower UK and the linen is from the same pair of upcycled curtains which I bought from a car-boot sale last year. In my last post I mentioned that I am more than ready for the better weather to arrive so that I can begin to replenish my dwindling fabric stash but look what arrived in the post yesterday...........
.....a huge pile of the most gorgeous pure Irish linen. It came courtesy of the wonderful Judith over at Just Jude, if you haven't yet visited her stunning blog then you are in for a real treat. Her creations are as beautiful as she is!
