Another early Christmas gift given meaning I can show it off on here!
I choose to make a sketch book cover as my friend is a talented artist and I thought he might appreciate a pretty book to sketch in.
I embroidered his name in an orange and yellow varigated thread and then crazy patchworked the front. On the back I did straight strips of fabric, then hemmed it and made turn overs for the book to slip in.
I confess to sneakily finding out what colours he might like by pretending to need inspiration for a different project. He seems pleased with it so I think it's a success!
