Mini Victorian Kittens Needle Book

 The minute Leslie from Alpha Stamps shared with us the theme for this months kit I knew exactly what I wanted to make (which is rare for me).
 My mini needle book measures approximately 3 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches. So yep, it's small.  
The images did not come on fabric so I tea stained some white cotton, ironed it onto some freezer paper and ran it through my printer (only praying a little bit). If that's not for you Alpha Stamps carries some ready made fabric printer sheets.
I really love the vintage look that I achieved.  
 Inside I created a pocket to hold scissors etc. and stamped it with the sewing machine from the sewing stamp set.  As for the felt pages I thought they all needed a bit of pizzazz so for my needles, they get to snuggle behind velvet ric rac
 Another little pocket to hold some buttons made out of a printed out image.
 Have to have safety pins!  The printed burlap lifts so you can have two layers of pins.  
 Straight pins guarded by a small kitten.
 And lastly a pocket to hold a small notebook I made to jot down measurements.  
Everything I used but the fabric for construction and the felt are available at Alpha Stamps.
This piece is on sale in my Etsy Shop.

I'm sharing this on My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday
