Tatlin Needle Book Kit
This DIY kit contains the supplies needed to hand sew a needlebook with wool pages and button closure. The look of this project is born of the ethic of making do, piecing together what you have, and using the whole cloth. Thus, we see selvedge edges as features and not parts to be removed. If you see a hole or a loose seam, visibly stitch over it rather than trying to conceal it. View those incidents as the fabric telling you what it wants, and use those unique features as prompts to make this project uniquely your own.
