Felt covered notebooks

My daughter is writing a diary so I made her a felt cover for it, her only instructions were no flowers as a main theme and not too much pink. She actually likes flowers as well as pink but I tend to overdose both, I can't help it I'm a declared pink addict, I admit it, so I have an excuse...


As the diary is top secret I could only take a photo of the cover, then she took it away and as I might never see it again I made some more. Here's another attemp to take it easy on the pink (-:


And then I heard a little voice inside me saying PINK, PINK, PINK.... When it comes to pink I'm too weak so I gave in.

Most of the work is done with a sewing machine with a touch of embroidery done by hand.

Here's another one I made for a dear friend's birthday a long time ago.


I love felt, it's warm, versatile, easy to use, friendly, the perfect material.
