After seeing some wonderful needle books on Crafters I had to make me one, so I did. I used a wool blanket I had fleeced for the outside, and had a friend draw me a simple set of flowers.  I outlined the flowers in seed beads, my first attempt at using seed beads on cloth. I used regular felt for the inside pages, and finished the outline in blanket stich, which I had to look up since I hadn't done it in years.  So here's mine:





When my DD saw it, she wanted one, so I made her one for Xmas.  I found a lovely satiny dress in our local Sally Ann, and cut it up to use for the needle book, and some other projects to come.  Hers is smaller since she doesn't sew much.  Hers has a green felt on the inside ( forgot to take a picture) made from a green wool blanket.  I lined the outside with clear gold seed beads, to match the smaller gold flower which you can just see in very bottom right hand corner.
