Knit one...

...Purl one.

One of the latest collection of images from Nicecrane Designs is "Fascinating Babies" and as a knitter, I just fell in love with this little crafting angel...
...and thought she was the perfect image for decorating a Knitter's note book.
Starting with a basic A5 hardback note book, I covered it with PP from the new "Sew Lovely" range by DoCraft and trimmed the spine & corners with another of the new washi tape designs from Scotch...
...the little knitting baby is adorable and to keep with the colour scheme...
 ...I edged the image with some of the washi tape. On the PP there are heart topped haberdashery pins and I just happened to have some heart-shaped beads in my stash that were the right colour.
The lettering is from another of the current DoCraft ranges - "Madame Payraud's"...
 ...and I used a Copic marker in the same aqua shade to edge the lettering.
A knitters note book has to have some knitting on it...
...I knitted a small panel which I then threaded onto cocktail sticks that I had made into mini knitting needles by sticking a couple of the beads to the top. The 'knitting' was attached to the book front using Glossy Accents.
There are five different images in this range...
...and if you would like to grab a set for yourselves, you can find it here.

I still have a pile of basic hardback note books so I'm off to have a think about how I can decorate them. In the meantime, why don't you hop over to the Nicecrane blog to take a look at what the DT have been creating........................................................................
