I'm pleased that I managed to get the raw edge applique looking so nice. It helps to cut out a few scraps and play with them a little, and place some different scraps next to each other to see if you like the colors in combination. This might be my favorite thing I've ever made for myself. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow her measurements as precisely as possible, because with pieces this small it's quite important to get the pieces and the seam allowances as exact as you can. I marked the 1/4 inch stitching lines using my acrylic ruler, and then sewed along those. Later I used the machine to do some of the other needle books, but because my machine's foot guide is just slightly over 1/4 inch, I used the stitching lines instead to keep things precise. Have fun with it!
