A needle book for EPP

When I rediscovered English paper piecing [EPP] during the 2020 pandemic lockdown, I began following several EPPers and EPP stitch-alongs on Instagram. I picked up several handy tips and was amazed by the clever piecing these EPP experts shared on line. I was also in awe of the beautiful, handmade needle books they showed. A needle book was destined for my EPP future!

The pieces of my new needle book are waiting to be assembled.

Needle book progress

This weekend I decided to work on my Needle Book and I've made great progress: 

  • a zipper is installed,
  • four pockets are appliqu├ęd,
  • several wool felt squares are hand stitched into place.

A few kinks still need to be worked out: 

  • how to assemble the signatures (saddle stitching or coptic binding??),
  • how to attach the book cover to the signatures, 
  • and I need to devise some kind of closure for the book.

I know I'll get a lot of use out of this needle book, so I hope this will be a Make Nine finish very soon!
