Star Gardener Block

Star Gardener block
Wow... finally got this together and the little block took nearly an hour, juggling with seam allowances to get it to press reasonably flat - I used so much steam I fogged up my glasses! Mind you I did stop for coffee half way through.

Here is the felt bookwrap I made on Monday, now completed. Mostly hand stitch as that was the day I took my Embellisher machine but not the lead.
This is made with some lovely wool felt given to me by Jean who had found a huge piece at a car boot sale. I put it through a hot wash and it felted up nicely, but wasn't quite wide enough so the lining was cut wider to act as a binding to control the slightly frilly edges.
