Sewing Book Finished

My Sue Spargo sewing book is officially complete. There is a ton of embellishment done in this project. I've mastered the bullion stitch and learned a lot about how embellishment can really make a project. This sewing book has a place for pens, markers, scissors, rulers, cutting mat, needles and all the bits and pieces that are needed for any type of sewing. This is the front, the covered button is my favourite.

Here is the back, the yellow flap is where the cutting mat is inserted. I really enjoyed this class and would take another class with Sue in a second. The project has so many different types of fabrics, it's mostly made up of wool but includes cotton, ribbon, velvet, satin ribbon, zippers, rick rack, chenille and wool roving. They didn't show much in the picture but the zipper pulls are made of felted roving balls.

The inside with a flower pincushion, needlebook and zippers on both sides.There is ribbon made like a measuring tape and several pockets on both sides to hold all the various sewing notions.

Happy Stitching.
