Another project on the go

I am teaching a group of ladies how to make a folder cover.
I have prepared all the pieces so they can see what to get ready for the next meeting. This is when we will finish the project.
You can use anything for the front. A stitchery, orphan block, scraps or just a patterned fabric.
The measurements of block / stitchery & folder will depend on what size to cut the fabrics. 
I am making this for a special friend. She made this stitchery for a close friend of hers who was too sick to put it to good use & has since passed away. When going through her sewing things she came across it again. So I thought I would make it into something special for her too keep.
It was then easy to work out the colours to match.

The inside pockets are ready to be sewn.

The strap, binding, buttons & elastic are here too.

I am linking up with WIP WEDNESDAY for this one.


  1. Hi jo what a beautiful gift you have made,lucky friend.xx

  3. Wow, this is awesome, I would love to venture out into things like this, I would love to do zipper bags too, I am just too much of a chicken!

  4. I have a wedding album kinda like this. Your embroidery adds the finishing touch though.


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
