Needlebook Tutorial

When I saw this cute cherry notepad at JoAnn Fabrics I just loved it. I'm doing a secret pal activity with my quilt guild. Each month you bring a little gift for your secret pal. I knew this would be a great gift for my secret pal. It made me think of the jam jar cover tutorial over at LucyKate Crafts. That inspired me to create this cherry needlebook.

These are for my secret pal but I liked the needlebook so much that I had to make one for myself. This is my first needlebook. I had so much fun making these and decided a tutorial was in order.

If you'd like to make a cherry needlebook you can download the tutorial and pattern here. Happy sewing!

Special thanks to Susan for editing this tutorial for me! I'm looking forward to making a few more this week to give as gifts! Yep, one will be for Susan.
Also thanks to my husband who is my technical support. Without him I wouldn't be able to upload a tutorial. Thanks honey, you're the best!
