The Sparkle in the Ho-hum
Editor's Note: Ever wanted to look inside of the mind of a crafter? Well, once again, we make that possible:
I have taken a real notion to be working with fabric recently. I decided to make a fabric book as I have seen so many gorgeous ones on the Internet and always wanted one. I dont have a sewing machine so I made this fabric book with needle and thread (plus fabric glue). It was fun and I do love it, even if it's not as accomplished as some of the wonderful ones I've seen elsewhere. I have added some essential oils to it. too, so that it smells good when being handled.
I can't show you Quail Bell(e)s all the pages as some are reserved for a design team piece using "Artistic Stamper" stamps. (You will spot a few of the number stamps stamped on to fabric throughout the book.). My calico and the "new" lace all came from Calico Crafts, as did the buttons. The strips of silk ribbon are from The Artistic Stamper. The rest of the book is made from vintage and reclaimed fabric and lace from my own little collection.
