Padfolio for Jane's birthday

Here is a picture of the padfolio I have made for my friend Jane's Birthday. She had been eyeing mine up and since she is a Sister specialising in Diabetes she takes notes all day. I made the background by laying strips of black and turquoise under misty fuse. I then used the automatic stitches to hold things a little more firmly. I then also attached 3 squares of embossed copper shim. I made a tag for the end of the cord from shim too. I love the colour in this piece.
