Felted Journal Cover

My first project! Using wool roving, funky yarn, tulle, organza and sateens,I I felted a cover for my "ideas" journal. After felting fibers and fabrics on to a piece of kunin felt, I satin stitched around the edges with rayon thread, used a leather punch to punch holes in the felted piece to line up with the spine spirals and put the cover on my journal. I am pleased with how this turned out -- with one exeption....... as I felted the cover -- it shrank! I knew that would happen to some extent from watching the dvd that came with my machine, however I did not allow enough "shrinkage" room and my cover is a bit shy of the pages. But I love it anyway!!
