|This would make a great Mother's Day gift :)|
|I started with 4 pieces of felt, the largest being 8 1/2 x 4 1/2|
inches. I cut the pages with my pinking shears to about
8x4 inches and I also cut two pieces of ribbon about
4 inches long to create the closure.
|I pinned the ribbon to the inside (the "wrong" side) of the cover.|
|I stitched all the way around the edges, taking the ribbon down as I went.|
|I pinned the pages in and stitched down the center.|
|Complete, but a little plain :(|
|I cut two pieces of green felt for grass and several|
pieces for flowers. I also choice some fun buttons for the centers.
|After stitching on the felt, I added some stems and leaves.|
I added some bees, too...I love them!
|Ready to go!|
