Karen was kind enough to help me out today in learning free motion stitching (which i found i need a new pressure foot to do) and fabric collage and bookbinding. This is the finished book cover. I have not completed the signatures ( that's a fancy term for pages in bookbinders talk!)... but I will post them when I get them done! I loved doing this, so i'm sure i will have more to show later in fabric crazy quilted journals!
Today i took a learning day to learn how to do free motion stitching and the art of collage and bookbinding. I got so caught up in the sewing process... that i almost lost my cel phone... almost!
This was the first step of the process... laying out the book cover and doing a little stamping.
Karen worked on her signatures for her fabric book that she made last week from her online class.
She uses vintage books, maps, ledger sheets, coffee filters, fabric, transparencies, pattern papers, envelopes... really anything can become a journaling page. Thanks for helping me get started on one Karen... it's was a great day!
Joy's daughter, Grace has a birthday coming in March and today, Joy made a cute little Maya Road cupcake chipboard book for her.
I love how simple it is and all the colors of the papers make you just want to have a chocolate cupcake with strawberry frosting... right?
Cory has spent the last two days working on a fabric wall hanging... this shows some of the bits and pieces of it coming together....
This is it all finished and hanging on the wall. I love the branch to hang it onto... great spring colors cory!
