Felt notebook cover
I made this little notebook cover for a friend for her birthday.
Obviously, her name is Bri!
To do this, I took a length of purple felt, and cut it to wrap around the cover of the book, leaving a few inches to slip the front and back covers into.
I sketched out the owl and branch, and cut them from contrasting felt, and hand stitched them onto the purple, as I also did with the letters. I backstitched in the green leaves for a bit extra detail.
Once I was finished with this, I blanket stitched all around the edges to neaten it, and to sew down the pockets at the end! It's not 100% perfect, but I thought it was pretty sweet for a first timer! x Rita
