from really big to teeny tiny

I'm still recovering from the huge queen size quilt I made last week. So today I had fun with a little project. I found the idea for this one in a great book, Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. You start with a moleskine cahier pocket notebook. Add fabric pieces in whatever design. Sew it to the cardboard cover with a small zigzag stitch. I added a mini bookmark to mine. I made 5 and they are available in the shop. Well, I made 3 other ones that my kids got because I didn't get the hang of it till the 4th one. One of the perks to having a crafty mom-- you get all the not quite sale able stuff :)


  1. G'day Jamie. How good are they. What a fabulous idea. You are one clever and talented lady. More power to you, my friend. Take care. Liz...

  2. Ah these are super cute! These are perfect Christmas gifts!

  3. G'day Jamie. Haven't read any blogs from you for a while. Is everything ok? Maybe you are just super busy with all the beautiful things you are sewing!!! Take care. Liz...
