Needlebooks

As I mentioned i the last post, I stitched up the other Sue Hllis exclusive kit from the 2008 memorial day stitch-in, and made both it and the one from this year into my first needle books:

2 needlebook

Of course after i did them I thought I *could* of done a tutorial. But all they are really are flat fold finishes like this, created with the "hinge" on the side instead of at the top. For the inside I did 2 different things, on the red and blue,just a simple folded piece of felt stitched to the spine.  On the pink and green I attached a thread ring and a piece of felt on the other side.  not sure which one i like better:
