I’m joining Jennifer over at Ellison Lane today as part of her Summer Patchwork Series!
You can check out my tips for making this little needlebook look extra scrappy and yummy!
I like to label the pages of my needlebooks so that I know which needles are where. And I love to find new uses for selvages!! So I came up with these little page labels.
Choose two selvages. You want the part without the ink dots and fabric information.
Trim the selvages so that approximately 3/4″ of the printed fabric remains beyond the unprinted area. Trim the two selvages at the same time so they’ll be exactly the same size.
Sew a 1/4″ seam with right sides together.
Press the seam open.
Trim the selvages to be 1/2″ longer on each end than the pages of the needlebook.
It should look like this.
Fold in the edges neatly.
Fold in the other side neatly. I put a dot of appliqué glue to hold it in place; Clover Wonderclips would also work.
Topstitch the selvages onto the needlebook pages. Leave a long tail of thread at the beginning and end. Knot the thread and bury the ends.
Label the pages! Enjoy!!
Happy needlebook making!
