Embroidered Bluebird Needle Book

For the past month or so I've been listening to a lot of Patsy Cline.  Here is one of my favorites. 
She's Got You-Patsy Cline

 I like bluebirds.  Especially embroidered bluebirds tee-hee-hee.


DMC 3838 for the bluebird.  DMC 3608 and 3609 for the roses and DMC 703 for the leaves
I cut a long rectangle out of an old cereal box and covered it with blue gingham fabric.  Once again, I used the glue gun to fasten the fabric to the cardboard.  I used pinking shears on the piece of fabric on the inside to give it a more finished edge.

I glued the little bird onto the cover and stuffed it with cotton.
I added a bit of Velcro to each side and this little pocket with a button onto the first page of felt.  The pocket will hold a floss bobbin!
Added a few of our fancy bead pins and a needle and some safety pins.
If I do this again, I will fold the cardboard to make a little spine.  The needle book ended up pretty thick.  I'd also like to figure out a way to keep a scissor in the book as well.
Until Tomorrow,
Have a Happy, Stitchy Day!
