In which I create a fabric book
It usually doesn't take me MONTHS to finish something, but some projects are easily set aside and picked up again, like this fabric book I began in July when Tami was visiting.
I play around with it a lot until I find what is most pleasing.
I love playing with textures especially; and of course, almost all the pieces I use are vintage.
After not touching it for about a month, I worked on the book again last night. Here it is all bound;
Not all the pages, but you get the idea...
I especially like how the back cover came out.
Next, it needs some buttons and bling.
All I have to do is decide what it wants to "be":
it might be an album in which I'll pin and tie found embellishments;
or, it might be a holder of photos, where I tie some in, put some into the pockets I've made, or just slip some in between the leaves.
I don't know yet if this book will end up in my shop...
but I will show you when it's finished!
