As a big fan of stitching and recycled wool felt the book Doodle Stitching Embroidery and Beyond is my kind of book! The first project I made was the cutwork felt bookmark. I new I would be using it with a Craftside Makeready journal so it was easy to cut to size.
I happen to have a felted sweater that had a tiny pocket on the front that I could incorporate into the design.
I cut a hole to fit one of the apples and simply followed the directions in Doodle Stitching Embroidery and Beyond to stitch the hole and the ends together.
This book is packed full of cute designs and patterns that you can follow directly or use as inspiration to create your own fun projects.
