Pillow Book Pocket

It is teaser time and you know what that means! It is getting close to the monthly release time at My Favorite Things! Here are a few details you should know about this month's release:
Teasers begin October 2nd and will happen every day until and including release day. You can find the list of designers for teasers each day at 11am EST on the MFT Blog.
The release party will be happening on the MFT Forums on October 6th beginning at 8pm EST (that is 5pm for us here in the pacific time zone).
Don't forget to check out our guest designer contest this month. You can find all that info in the forums HERE.
The big "Hop and Shop" day will be release day (October 6th) where you will be able to hop and see all the goodies on the designer's blogs and then do a "shop" the festivities will begin on the MFT blog.

Here is my peek at a new sentiment set for book lovers (CLEARLY SENTIMENTAL ABOUT BOOKS)...I am also giving you a peek at 2 of the new dies (POLKA DOT GREETINGS FRAMED DIE and ROLLED ROSE DIE).
Here is a close up of the pocket I created. This is from an old pair of jeans. I pieced together some of my favorite fabrics and then added a pocket to the front...perfect for books!
I Loooove this new rolled rose die with its' scalloped edges. I used some of the felt I have purchased from the MFT store and made a double bloom from it. So quick and easy for projects!
Here are the thumbnail photos of the dies that I used.



Enjoy teaser day...be back first thing monday morning with a PI (pure innocence) preview!

Lovely post! So similar to my own experience, although I wasn't near as eloquent at the time.
