Hi there Crafty Friends! After taking short hiatus from crafting, I'm back to share a new project I created for Creative Embellishments - a Vintage Style Needle Book I made using the CE Passport Journal Cover.
I started off by separating the front and back covers from the spine piece, as I wanted a little more flexibility to the cover hinges. I wrapped the outside of the cover with fabric and decorated it with some lace, cheesecloth, measuring tape trim and a vintage sewing Trade Card. I added a couple of vintage buttons and a sewing machine charm on a bulb pin and made a closure for the book using a post button and a recycled Sari Silk tie.
Button and Thread Cards, which I covered using print-outs of vintage sewing Trade Cards and patterned paper - I also inked the edges of the thread cards with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.
