Relief Society birthday gifts

One of my callings at church is to acknowledge each woman's birthday.  I wanted to do something fun and crafty, but also useful.  I finally decided on little felt needlebooks.  They can have as much or as little detail as I feel like, and I find mine very handy to have around.

In the past, I've embroidered family and friends' names on the ones I made for them, but I was worried that would be too time-intensive with such a large group.  Instead, I found a bag of cute coordinating buttons and sewed a few onto the front of each book.  The books consist of three strips of felt bound together with embroidery floss, with a decorative blanket-stitch around the cover.
