They sold very quickly. So I decided to try some diaries too. These sold quickly too, so I started making quite a few more! In fact this is one of the reasons I have been so busy these last few weeks.
vintage embroidered linen stash and just patchworking a wee frame for it.
excellent tutorial on Teresadownunder's blog, but I have adapted this quite a bit now to make it quicker. I don't use any interfacing, I use one piece of fabric, folded in half, for the pocket and find this needs to be no bigger than 7" (and can be quite a bit smaller) unfolded, and I don't topstitch round the outside.
Are you getting bored yet? I really hope you like looking at vintage linen notebook holders, because if you don't you've come to the wrong place today!
I also made a few special ones (using 'precious' fabric) for Christmas presents, like the one below for my best friend in London, who is kindly putting me up for the retreat next June, and lending me her sewing machine for the weekend.
I was so pleased and excited to discover, after my last post, that so many of you European bloggers are going to be coming to the Fat Quaterly Community Retreat next year, and quite a few from Scotland too!
I also made one for a very special, long distance, blogging friend. I forgot to take a photo of this one but she has received it and has promised to blog about it, so soon you can take a look at it here (I know you will be just dying to see more of these!).
Nearly finished now! Here's 3 more I just finished this afternoon, some still waiting for buttons. I did make one more after this but the light had faded by then so you will be spared one more!
Well Christmas is nearly upon us, and that will be the last one I make this year.
But I think I might just have time to top up on my owl stock...
