Embroidery Project- Notebook Cover Part 6, Stitching on the Edge

Edge Stitches Portrait

I found some design space!

Found Design Space

After setting up the final construction and placing the ‘pencil quiver’, I found a wee bit of embroidery design space there on the back pocket.

Monkeys want their bananas, right? So how about a banana?

Maybe a BananaPlace the bananaIron the bananaTransferred Banana

In order to ‘find’ that embroidery space, I had to stitch on the edges of the some of the exposed sides. Here is the one edge of the flap pocket and the overlapping flap. It uses buttonhole and blanket stitches.

Edges stitched with Banana transfer

The pencil quiver is tacked down then stitched over the edge with buttonhole stitches.(And blanket stitch for the opening edge)

After the embroidering the banana, the whole sketchbook notebook cover can be sewn together and it will be closer to becoming attached to my purse. It’s almost mobile!

What are you up to?

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
