This set is made with the new bead range in Hobbycraft, Jeanette pointed them out when we were there the other day "ooooh I like those" so I bought them. I know she loves wooden beads to so I have incorporated them into the design too.
But my creativity didn't stop with these. Faye showed me a link to make a slip cover for a note book. So I set about making one for Jeanette. It took a few attempts to perfect but it was well worth the extra effort as it looks fantastic. I'm not sure I want to give it away! Faye has a lovely selection of fabric for sale so I purchased some from her to make sure this slip cover. The fabric is African wax cotton. This one I liked as it is metallic. I used a pink ribbon to make the book mark and put a removable charm on for weight. The lovely thing about slip covers is that they can come off when the book is finished with.
