mini dresden plate »
InstructionsI used the free dresden plate pattern to make the cute block for the front of my journal cover!
Type of item: Functional
Style: Cute, Traditional, Eco-Friendly
fabric, thread, batting, composition notebook
What was your inspiration?
The picture for the pattern - when I saw that cute block I knew it would be perfect as a journal cover
What are you most proud of?
I did the hand stitching with embroidery floss - a little harder to work with than perle cotton, but I had the colors I wanted to use.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just be accurate in your cutting and sewing, press as you go. It comes out so cute! A 2 inch circle works perfectly for the center (add seam allowance to it, though!)
