Wow! I just finished watching all four video's for the journal. This is an awesome idea. My daughter just got her first sewing machine ( She's 11), and I've been searching for something 'easy' to do together, and all though I don't know much about needle work except basic things, we are going to try this. I can't wait. I wish I had seen this post earlier than today. Smiley Gotta clean some before I start. I'm excited.

Ooh count me in! I started making a book and I got over zealous and it grew too big, and then I made a doll... I keep meaning to make something practical like a book and keep getting sidetracked Roll Eyes

I want to make a binder cover for clipping travel stuff in, tickets and leaflets and whatnot.

We are both pooped out from all the sewing. This is as far as Emily and I have made it. I am proud of Emily's progress.

This is Emily's front and back. We have been calling it her 'pillow back' book.  Grin

This is my front and back.
We plan to work more on it tomorrow after we have our breakfast. Smiley
Thanks so much for looking.

These are so lovely! And now i'm addicted to watching her on Youtube! Cheesy

This looks like a lot of fun and perfect for a non-sewer like me Tongue

Thank God I'm not the only one who is obsessed with Teesha Moore and her youtube videos.

Watching them made me seriously dash off to my stash room and see if i could start immediately.

I love thats its not perfect cos I can't 'do' perfect. I love her free style and relaxed approach............it is meant to be fun after all.

Here is a pic of my cushions so far. I'm finding it hard to not obsess about being neat and about having the 'right' fabrics and is my stitching ok or messy .........oh lots of stressing but also somehow i'm keeping going and anyway the work so far......


Ok so thats where I am, a bag of cushions and 4 stitched. i feel mine are not as good yet as some others on here BUT i intend to embellish them further once i have all the stages of making clear in my head. Get the technique right them  make em fancy! Wink

Sorry to hijack your post just wanted to share Undecided

Does anybody have any tips on how to stop your knotted embroidery threads from becoming unknotted and unravelling

Wow! Teesha's fabric journals are amazing!! Love what you guys have done so far!! Think I'm going to give it a bash too! I have some fabric squares lying about as I wanted to give quilting a go, but this seems so more "me" - It seems simple enough too!!

Thats so funny  Cheesy I watched those videos too and I have about 6 pillows finished already. Not sure what to do with them yet. I was also thinking of making a purse. I will upload some pictures soon.

Jodilee--I find that if you double the thread, make a overhand knot, then on the first stitch, insert your needle BETWEEN the two threads, you get a pretty secure hold on the fabric...plus, the overhand knot adds a nice little "extra" to your stitching Cheesy.

You can also secure the knot with a bit of fray check or fabric glue... I tend to do that a lot fo keep things from unraveling down the road!
