DIY Mini felt notebook


Make your own Why I love you felt mini Book

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MINI WORD STITCH FELT BOOK

What you need for one 6 page book
- 1 A4 white felt sheet
- Black embroidery thread + needle
- Pens, blue & pink
- Ruler & scissors
- metal jump rings (find in jewellery supply section)

1/ get all your things together
2/ measure your sheet into 6 even panels and cut. I did mine at 8cm by 10cm
3/ with a ruler draw even blue lines across your felt panels. Make them large enough for you to stitch the words in them. Then with your pink pen draw down the margin down the side.
4/ Now its time to stitch!! you can do any phrases you like, just write them on a piece of paper first to make sure they would fit. I did a book of love that you could give to your best friend or sister, lots of ways to change this to work for different people.
5/ after you have done all your wording you need to cut the holes in the margin. I cut the cover panel first and then used that as a template for the other panels
6/ put each felt panel on to your jump rings and you are done

If you do not like the thread showing on the inside of the panels you could glue some fabric pieces to cover them but I left with the thread showing just because I thought it looked cool.

I hope you have fun with this and create some adorable mini books :)

  1. What a great way to tell the special someone in your life that you love them! I'm thinking of making one to put in my little girl's Christmas stocking. Short phrases telling her how much I love her! I'm posting a roundup of my favorite notebook tutorials on my blog and will be including this. Thank you for the idea :)
