Covered Notebook-Craft Blog Club Challenge

Hello everyone! 

I adore Twitter.  The support I've had over the last 9 months for the blog has been amazing, and I've 'met' some really lovely, like minded people.  Fellow bloggers from across the board, vintage lovers, crafters, florists to name but a few.  Lots of very inspiring people.
I join in with several weekly evening meet ups, such as #vintagefindhour, #handmadehour and #loveyourblog. I have recently found a fab new group on Twitter, who 'meet up' on a Tuesday evening by using the #craftblogclub hashtag.  Craft blog club is organised by the lovely Emma at Life is Peachy, and at the beginning of September, she set us a challenge to cover a notebook.  Quick and easy enough to not get too bogged down by, but also enough to get really inspired and stuck into.
I went for a vintage style cover with pale pinks and a rosette, as well as button embellishments. I used cream coloured felt as a base, then I pulled out lots of my fabric scraps and machine sewed strips of vintage eiderdown fabric and sewed old buttons on.  I love the finished result, and I'm looking forward to taking part in another challenge soon!

If you are on Twitter, pop over and join us!  My Twitter page is here.
