So last night I began sewing my needlebook together. Hand sewing/stitching I love, enjoy, take great pleasure in but sitting down in front of a sewing machine is a different story. I'm sure the thing has it in for me!! Putting the 2 sides together, I sewed around it and that turned out not too badly. The next step was to sew in the felt pages using a zipper foot. I had no idea what this looked like or where it was. My mom was home and when I asked her if the piece I found was the zipper foot she said " No, that's for making buttonholes." Aaargh! I did find the right piece in a container of spools and other sewing machine stuff and sewed in my needle pages. Voila:
So here is my needlebook sans the tie which just didn't work out and sans the accent piece on the back which looked horrible due to my uneven machine sewing. I have yet to finish the spine piece to cover up my messy sewing on the outside and also put a pocket in the inside. When I showed my daughter my needlebook, her response was "Another one?" Yes, I do have 4 already but now I'll have 5 :)
I didn't get my first one quite right so decided to make another one right away and hopefully I won't have to use the seam ripper on this one and now that I won't have to look for the zipper foot, it should go smoother.
