Theme Thursday "something new"






I got my copy of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine yesterday and there was an article on making fabric book so I thought I would have a go. My kids went to play at a friends house so I had time to get my sewing machine out and use some of the fabric scraps that I have. I made the book out of felt and stamped some images onto material. The second and fourth page pockets open up and I hope to store fabric ATCs in there. Enjoyed making this book and I can see I will be doing a lot more with fabric & textiles in 2009 as I really enjoy working with fabric compared with paper as I get can put more texture in my work.

Love your fabric book Lorraine! It's full of texture and wonderful colours. I think I may just have to have a copy of that issue and make myself one too! TFS...
And a Happy New Year to you too!
