recycled fabric and wool needlebook

As a fundraiser for the community sewing studio at Grow Benzie, we made these little needlebooks. They are made from recycled upholstery fabric samples, felted wool sweater pieces and leftover ribbon from a wedding (thank you, Taryn!).

Several were sold at the Bioneers conference for $5 donations, at the "sew a button, revamp your clothes" workshop. Participants sewed their own button on the front and then took the needle home in this handy little book. I'm hoping to post some on my etsy site soon. Would you be open to any fabric combo, or perhaps a whimsical or traditional choice? Perhaps a tutorial is in order.

Yes! I would love a tutorial. Actually I just finally used the wool pants tutorial you made last winter!

Thank you!
