A Fabric Accordian Book
I made this little fabric book for the Mini Scrap Book Trade on FAT (Fiber Art Traders). Wanda the hostess posted a link to Teesha Moore's website where she demonstrated these stitched covers. The instructions for the trade were that we could fill the entire scrap book or leave some space for our partner to embellish. I decided to leave a few spaces for my partner. After studying various mini-books, I decided to make an accordian book with fabric pages. I used Pel-Tex as a base for the pages. The title "Life's a Stitch" is stamped on the first page. Since it is a "scrap" book, I used scraps from my studio to embellish the pages. The fabrics are actually leftover quilt bindings that are stitches to the pages. The stamps are from the Sew Special collection by Clear Art Stamps. I made the butterfly on the front cover a few years ago with my embroidery machine. A button and silk flower complete the fabric book. This trade enabled me to again "use my stash". One of my goals for the year. Thanks to Wanda for a great trade.
