Welcome Back 

In today’s post, I’m sharing a picture of my very first fabric covered book. 

My First Fabric Covered Book

My First Fabric Covered Book

Back in early May a good friend Crafty Nanna took pity on my lack of sewing skills and came round to get me started with sewing. She also very kindly left me a huge pile of fabric to play with. The fabric I covered the book with has a lovely suede finish. Very tactile, and would make great books for men. I covered the book board with a light layered of PVA and applied the fabric. The turn in’s on the corners were tricky, as if I applied too much glue it seeped through and marked the surface. 

Here is the book, once it has been decorated

I created an ATC using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Versa Fine in Onyx Black 

Stamps: Crafty Individuals; 204, Elusive Images; UA6GW0194; Words of Inspiration, Hero Arts; H2365 Old French Writting. 

Binding Style: The book is bound in my favorite Coptic Stitch using brown linen thread. The book is just over A7 in size, perfect for popping into your pocket. 

This piece fits in with this month’s theme of ‘F’ for The Virtual Crafting Challenge, ‘F’ for Fabric :) 

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

I would like to share the book page I made for Megan over on the Stamping Mad Forum’s book swap for July 2008.  Megan’s theme was ‘ Seaside or On the Water’.

I didn’t have any suitable stamps so Megan very kindly stamped some images for me and sent them with the blank page. This was the first time I have used silicone glue to give my images dimension and I will definately use it again, even if it does wiff! (Stink). I have not had any luck buying any decent 3D foam square in the last few years so had a go with the silicone. Sadly there was only a little left so will need to buy more.

Any hoo back to the pages
