With this first project I've grabbed the 'What's the Story?" Quirky kit and the mini 'Sew Embellishy' fabric Quirky Kit.
A-Z mini book
As well as the two kits I also used up some spare page protectors I had. These started as American Crafts 6x6 size but I trimmed 1 inch off the top which made them roughly 5x7 size, (including the binding at the edges).
If you haven't got a sewing machine there's still a way you can make two pockets from one page protector using the sticky tape from the What's the Story kit.
Here's the completed embroidery. I've used a pattern from a fabric, (this Eiffel tower one was in the Hot Date Quirky Kit) and cut out the shapes from it to use so even if you don't have a template to work from you can cut out patterns from a fabric. The stitched writing is really simple to do I did mine free hand because I wanted more of a 'quirky' look but if you wanted to make it neater you could draw on the letters first and stitch over the top.
