Autumn Canvas Stitch-a-long

Autumn Square Laura Perin

Our EGA Chapter does a year long stitch-a-long for both linen and canvas. I didn’t care for the linen SAL, so I chose the canvas project instead.  For the canvas SAL, it could be any autumn themed piece.  I chose this Autumn Square, which was a freebie from Laura Perin Designs when I ordered some other charts from her.  The piece itself was a very fast stitch and is roughly 3.75 x 3.75 inches completed.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it at first, but finally decided to make it into a needlebook & scissor keep.  I created the outside of the needlebook with some autumn themed fabric from my stash and stitched the needlepoint piece onto the front.  I added “pages” of wool felt and added a pocket for small scissors and labels for different sizes of needles.  I am very pleased with the results!  Thanks Laura for the beautiful design!

 

By requests, here are rough instructions for how I assembled the needlebook.  I haven’t had time to draw out diagrams, but will try to amend this in the future for clarity:
