They are easy to make - I thought I'd show you how!
I had a rummage through my bin of embroidered linens and cut out 15 rectangles, about 12cm x 16cm with the pretty embroidery strategically placed to be mostly on the front cover of each of the needlebooks.
Then I chose pieces of vintage florals to match the embroideries, cutting it to the same size.
These are from various sources: charity and antique shops; Donna Flower; Sal's Snippets Shop and Rag Rescue. The vintage embroideries are mostly from my local charity shops.
I iron some woven cotton interfacing onto the linens, to stiffen them a little, then putting right sides together I stitch the linen and floral cottons together, leaving a little opening to turn right side out. I use about a 5mm seam allowance.
Turn in the seam allowance on the opening and give the books a good press with a hot steam iron, the linens are so robust they can take the heat!
Now top stitch all round, closing up the opening at the same time.
I then find coloured felt that will co-ordinate with the florals, to make the pages, cutting them out with pinking shears. Then I just machine the pages in across the centre of each book. I do this in a long line, not cutting the thread in-between each one until they are all stitched.
Trimmed of all loose ends, I fold each needlebook in half and give them a good steam press.
