Beer Coaster Concertina








And now for something completely different!!

what about using the lowly beer coaster as 

the substrate for a concertina book?




 


Bartenders will think you are crazy,

when you ask for a few extra..

but who cares right?

enjoy the process and thanks so much for watching!!

Fabric Book Part 3





Ciao gentle viewers..

here is the final installment on my

Fabric Book..

I have to tell you that I have such a response to the 

Fabric transfer method

that I have decided to do a fabric transfer video

for our next post..





 


but today... let's do some collage together..


I so enjoy mixing slow stitch and collage..

combing paper and fabric and bits of ribbons..

it is so satisfying to mix so much texture together..


Have a glorious weekend and thank you so much 

for your kind viewership..


we so appreciate you all..

Fabric Book Part 2





Here is Part two 
of my
Fabric Book
today we are working on pages..

I used handwritten antique papers, tea towels and hand dyed 
fabrics, made from old table cloths and cotton scraps..






 


Next time gentle viewers,

 we will collage the pages

with papers and fabrics..


Until then, have fun dying fabrics and stitching them into your

gorgeous covers..

C4N!!

Fabric Book Part 1







Ciao, dear hearts..

This journal can easily be adapted to use with a 

sewing machine

or even just using glue for the collaged cover..




 



but the signatures do need to be stitched into the book..

I hope you enjoy it and the next videos

that create the pages, inside covers and some collage..


as always, I so appreciate your kind

viewership..
