I made this little needlebook for my dear friend Cecilia. She has stitched before but they were all given away to friends before returning to Kuala Lumpur. She's returning to cross stitch with a vengeance :)
I followed Meari's needlebook tutorial on Focus of Finishing and it turned out great. I made some changes to the fastening method. Instead of ribbons I used hemp and a wooden button instead. The alphabets are from Sajou 361 which can be found here.
