little things

Here is my latest project that I LOVE love love. I made this for the make mine mini challenge on Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and will find out Thursday if I am selected.( crossing my fingers)
This sweet tiny mini sewing needle book is 2 by 3 inches and packed with goodies: torn and coated papers, sewn scraps of fabrics, trims and labels and of course needles carved out of bone I found. I added an antique crystal on the front and wired wrapped old buttons on the side to hold it all together.
I put small tabs to label  some of the pages and have a darling red velvet ribbon to close it up.

I hope this inspires you to make something mini-My friends can tell you that I am a sucker for small items.......buttons, books, stuffed animals, you name I want it! Tell me what you think!Thanks for dropping by.Happy PPF to all those visiting!!
