Fragments of cotton fabric, some recycled other pieces scraps from dressmaking or patchwork projects, have been combined in a 'crazy patchwork design' onto a kunin felt background using an embellisher.

Chosen for their pastel tones, the fabric scraps in shades of pale pink and lilac have been bonded to a felt background using an embellisher machine. Pieces have been torn to shape to avoid the sharp edges produced by scissors and to begin the fraying process, accentuated by the machine. The 'patchworked' cover has then been embroidered using simple hand stitching. Some stitching elements have been placed to reinforce weak areas in the patchwork, others to further 'bond' seams. A fine ivory crochet cotton has been used throughout to emphasize the 'vintage' feel of the design - the cotton is about 30 years old and so almost 'vintage' in itself. The kunin felt used for the background is eco-friendly - produced from the recycling of plastic bottles.

The cover has been lined in a checked fabric, also upcycled from a shirt. Two pieces of pale pink felt, obtained as scrap pieces from a commercial process, are stitched in place to give four pages in which to place your pins and needles. The needlebook closes with a piece of lace twisted around a vintage button.
