Woodland Bloom Journal Cover

I absolutely loved making this linen journal cover. I already want to make another. The pick stitching was fun and easy and Woodland Bloom was the fabric I used to make the 2 inch squares on the front of the journal, modern and still girly.

The back is an appliqued flower.

More pick stitching.

This was my first experience with linen and the embroidery needles glide through the natural fabric. The fabric against the more plain color of the linen highlight the fabric used and makes the colors even more sweet.

I snuck in a little more outlining of the actual flower print and a little label.

So...Ok I am not the original designer or the idea lady behind the journal cover or the designs on it. A stitcher from Australia has a blog named Bloom with a great tutorial on how to make these. Linen and Raspberry was one of the first ladies to whip up one of these from the tutorial and whose flower graces the back of my journal cover.

I hope you enjoy using this Jenny! I was so happy to make this for you! ;)
