I finished the pocket off!  Yeah, one more piece done.

The bottom edge of the pocket will be laced to the bottom of the box somewhere.
I cheated and sewed the bag together on my sewing machine.  I am tickled to see this piece take shape.

It is sitting on on the panels to be be attached to the bottom of the box.

There will be buttons sewn to the sides of the bag to button up the panels.

There are three things left to stitch on the Quaker Bag:  the panel I'm working on that goes on the back of the needle felt page,

the top to the box that is inside the box (it only has backstitching on it), to cover up this

 and lastly, the front and back of the notebook.  Oh, and the drawstrings, I have to fingerloop those.  I can do this!!


  1. I can't believe how fast this is taking shape! Good for you for getting right to the finishing - I normally loose my oomph.

  2. This project is mind-boggling. You're doing a great job!

  3. Wow it's so beautiful my dear x

  4. You're be done lickety split and will have such a treasure. Great job!

  5. This is such an interesting piece.
