I'm a crafter, but I'm an artist too! So I crafted my very own handmade sketchbook Smiley



The design is machine embroidered on felt, and the fabric has double sized interfacing iron in between the two layers to give it a nice sturdy cover, but leaves the binding nice and flexible. I then just stitched in some folded pages. Ta da! Sketchbook Smiley



Open it up and sketch your masterpieces! Or a 5 minute sketch of what was supposed to be your left hand but looks a bit more like a monster claw with sausage fingers.

Meh.


Detail of embroidery. Ain't it pretty?



I'm diggin my new sketchbook. Plus is was really really easy to make! I'm thinking this would be a great way to make a custom photo book or guest book.
