Felt Needlebooks

I fell in love with the Mary Flanagan wool I purchased from Purl on New Year's Eve and decided to use some of it to make needlebooks based on the pattern from Joelle's latest book.

I hand sewed the lace on after sewing them up. I don't have a walking foot (yet) so I adjusted the tension and it worked fine. I love the outside but I'm not 100% sold on the use of cotton flannel for the pages or maybe I just prefer a heavier weight cotton flannel.

I also used a little of this lace on one of Little M's baby shirts recently to sort of dress up the blue because although I've no problem putting a baby girl in blue everyone will think she is a boy if she's in blue.
