RATZ swap for July -Needlebook.

This was so much fun to make!
I enjoy the process of creating something from scratch so much, and this was no ecception.
For July we were going to make a needlebook for our swap partner. I always wanted to make one, so I started at the moment we got the mail about who our partner was.
I had mostly free hands on this one, because my swap partner was very open about her likings.

So, here are the needlebook:

I'm really enjoying making crochet edges, so you will probably see a lot of that from me in the future.

Details about this needlebook:

-Made by me, no particular pattern, but with lots of inspiration from other bloggers and Flickr users.
-Appliqued leaves, ticker tape style.
-Linen and cotton fabrics, with felt for the "pages".
-Crochet edging in teal cotton yarn.
-Closure with wooden beads in the ends.

My swap partner in The Netherlands got her needlebook, and I'm so happy she liked it!

Now I'm stalking the postman to see if my needlebook will be arriving soon:-)
There are so many great entries in the ratz swap group, so I can hardly wait to see which one is mine.
