A Liberty Needle Book







Woohoo - I have a TADA moment.  The Liberty needle book I started last week is finished.
  • It measures approximately 5.5" x 14" and  folds into three sections.
  • The exterior is made up of a piece of vintage embroidery, some scraps of soft denim and some of my favourite Liberty prints.  I especially love that bright ditzy floral on the front.
  • The interior is made up of an ivory solid and a dainty floral from Robyn Pandolph's most appropriately named Love and Liberty range, which perfectly matched the lining.  The inner left section is a pocket divided into two and edged with a small binding of one of my favourite Liberty prints. The  middle section is a piece of beautiful coral hand dyed felt, also edged with Liberty binding,  and the right section a small zip up pocket.  
  • All folded together and tied up with a matching cerise ribbon.
I am so pleased with how this has turned out.  My mission tomorrow, as long as I am not  called into work is to make the second paper pieced knight chess piece, Who knows, I may even get inspired and finish the cushion.  Housework is over rated after all,

  7. It looks wonderful Julie and a very well thought out design. I actually have a small table runner which has six of the same 'vintage' embroideries on it. Maybe one day I'll make something like this with it.

  11. Love this needle book, Julie! I have seen many needle books but this one seems just perfect to me! I have been looking closely at your photos and been wondering how did you add that little pouch to the middle panel? Could you enlighten me please?
