A Gift for Maddy

This morning Miss ten and I set to work to make a birthday pressie for one of her friends...... nothing like leaving things till the last minute! Miss ten had been working on a stitchery from Anni Downs book "simple Pleasures" over the last couple of days which we appliqued to the front of the Journal cover. To assemble the cover we used a tutorial from Bloom for the basic instructions and measurements although we did change a few things to achieve the result Miss ten was after.
It was very easy to assemble and much less bulky than ones i've made in the past...... which means there will be plenty more to make before Christmas comes around. We were both very pleased with how it turned out and hope that Maddy likes it as much as we do.
Miss ten has now also started a blog of her own to display her creations, you can check it out at Little Miss Thimble.
