Book Cover Challenge

Our little group at Gisborne Quilters has been running a small sewing challenge for those who want to join in each month.
This month was a book cover. Unfortunately there was only 2 of us with our covers on Wednesday night. I'll have to get photos of the other ladies book covers next week for you to see.
This is my book on the left and  Helens on the right.
This is the inside of Helens, she has done a fabulous job decorating the front of the cover with stitching and little buttons and even added a little pocket with pen on the inside.
No pocket on the inside of mine...but I did add a book mark and I do adore the postcard fabric that I picked up.

The book covers look great and the book mark inside gives it a special touch. Very nice.
Cheers, Anita.
