Needle books are all over the internet but for some reason this one made me take a seat and get to work.  No pattern…just pictures to go by.  It has some flaws…”unsmooth”  corners, a couple of puckers, probably should have quilted it a bit more for stability but that said.  I still love it.

I’ve had this fabric in my stash for a while and wasn’t sure what to do with it.  I think it’s perfect for this little book.  It makes me happy to just look it.

An inside pocket…just because.

I made it a bit too big and will probably shorten the closure but the extra room may come in handy for another project I have up my sleeve.

It’s interesting what you can do when you take your head out to the way.  It’s fun to wing it sometimes.
