I make needle books using tiny scraps of fabric on graph paper foundations. Stitch on the lines using small stitches with lightweight thread in a neutral color. Remove the paper, layer the tops with a backing square and batting, and stitch around the edge. Trim the outer edge with pinking shears. Make a back using 2 squares of fabric and 1 square of batting. Stitch and trim in the same way. Attach the pieces with embroidery floss or perle cotton and a cute button.
