Turkish Jewels Scissors Case, Fob and Needle Book

Bobbin and Fred has published the instructions for their needle book on their website.  The instructions for the scissors case and fob were in Needlepoint Now's November-December 2018 issue.

All of the pieces of the set were sewn on 14 count plastic canvas so you can easily substitute 13 count needlepoint canvas if you prefer.  Plastic canvas is stiffer, of course, and the cut edges won't unravel.  Here's how to join pieces of plastic canvas together.
