Owl make my notebook pretty!

There's a whole stack of black and neon pink felt left over from Pi's Halloween costume. Its been sitting under my sewing table, challenging me to find a use for it.

When I saw THIS tutorial over at CraftStylish, I knew I wanted to try a variation of it on this little notebook. Its a 5.5 x 3.5 pocket sized notebook that I've been keeping track of my calories in.



I'm not a big fan of the buttons, so I played around with scraps of red, green, and white felt and came up with this.



I got to practice a little embroidery and a blanket stitch around the edges too. I love it!




Very quick project...it took me just an evening in front of the tv.

The neon pink felt is feeling a little lonely, but I'll find a use for it yet!

How cute! My daughter loves to collect journals, and diaries, and fancy notebooks, so she would just love that one. Looks like you're getting quite prolific with all the crafts - first crocheting, then knitting and sewing, and now embroidery too!
