Cloth Book Update
After finally deciding on the fabric, embellishments, and thread for the cloth book (see here), the next step was to start stitching on the pages. I planned on following in Ann Wood’s footsteps (it’s her book tutorial I’m using for this project) by allowing the pages to come together organically – adding fabric pieces and embellishments as I went one page at a time. But it didn’t work out that way. I sat down to start page #1 and got so excited about playing with the scraps that I just kept going. Suddenly, after two sessions of playing, I had designs pinned down for all 20 pages.
I’m not considering any of the ideas as set in stone – I’m sure things will get changed and rearranged. And how everything gets stitched on will still be figured out page by page. I guess I could have been more worried about not leaving enough room for spontaneity by designing the pages ahead of time, but I was having too much stinkin’ fun to care.
