Needlebook #2

I made another needlebook; this one was supposed to be a gift for Sinterklaas but I had forgotten to bring it with me, so now I'm giving it this evening.
This one is a lot more photogenic than the last! Still I'm not sure if I should call it purple or blue.
It's made of sprookjesvilt or 'fairy felt' and I handstitched around the edges with buttonhole stitch. I used pinking scissors for the inside 'pages', added a couple of needles and wrapped it up with a length of embroidery thread in the colour I used.

I'm considering whether or not to make a bunch of these for my next craft fair, what do you think?

Ik maakte nog een naaldenboekje; deze was bedoeld voor 5 december maar ik was 'm vergeten mee te nemen... Dus krijgt ze hem vanavond.
Deze is wat fotogenieker dan de vorige! Maar ik kan alleen niet besluiten of het nou paars is of blauw.
Het is gemaakt van sprookjesvilt en rondom gefestonneerd met borduurgaren. Deze keer heb ik de 'blaadjes' met een kartelschaar geknipt. Een paar naalden erin en een stukje bijpassend borduurdraad eromheen geknoopt en klaar.

Ik denk erover om er een stel te maken voor mijn volgende creamarkt: wat denk jij?

  4. I could do with a new needle book. The hand stitching around the edges looks so effective.
