How To Make A Mini Sewing Book Gift Tag- Tutorial

Or safety pins, cotton ! etc
Closed tag book, with transfer letter writing, it makes a little extra special gift. The tape measure ribbon is from http://www.artycrafty.com/
The book contains needles,pins buttons or whatever you wish

I have been a little obsessed with making mini-books lately, it started with making books for my Polly Book readers and has now escalated to mini books for dinner place settings, mini menus but I like this  gift tag sewing book best. It’s a great little extra gift for that like-minded seamstress. Other ideas at the bottom of the page.

If you find any of the instructions a bit confusing please ask and I will explain them better.

      Hi there, glad you like it, i thought it would be nice if say you were giving someone some fabric or maybe a sewing book. The ribbon i got about two months ago from Arty Crafty in Godalming in Surrey, i will try and do a link!!
