Paper Patchwork....Little Book for Sewing Needles

I made a paper patchwork quilt for my dolly in her matchbox (see previous post) and then when I went to make her bed, realised it was just a fraction too wide. It really needs to be exact otherwise her little bed doesn't slide in and out of the matchbox with ease.

What to do.....
I had also been making some cute stickers and was wanting to use them, plus I have heaps of a lightweight foam. Inspiration hit.... how about a little book for sewing needles? It was worth a try and this is my first attempt.

    You best get busy on that sweet little quilt though you wouldn't want the wee miss to catch cold.
