All throughout 2014 I stitched a full set of little cupcakes, designed by Lorraine Clarke and downloadable for free on Cyberstitchers. They turned out various sizes because I was using leftover pieces of fabric, and were not necessarily in the “correct” colours because I used leftover threads. As with many of my stitchings, they were then bunged into a drawer ^^ However . . . I knew they were there, and my little brain had saved an idea inspired by Yvonne (from February 2013), when she sent me a needle book and a pin book. I had seen tutorials for this kind of thing for example on Cats ‘n Cart Crafts and here on Make it Do.
I therefore decided to make some of my own . . .
nothing could be easier! Some card, some felt, a stapler, and some needles or pins.
Anyway, two of these needle books have already been posted as little birthday gifts . . . saying that, I’m not very good with remembering birthdays, so I’ve decided that the rest will be posted as the year progresses . . . and make little surprise “UNbirthday” gifts to some of my blogging, stitching friends ^^ You never know, you may be one of the lucky people . . . if not, they really are so simple to make, I suggest you give it a try.
