Stitch a book progress...

Okay, now it's confession time!

You have seen on my previous posts some of my work for my stitch a book online workshop with Kim Archer and Mardi Winen, but what I didn't tell you is that the books these ladies designed were interactive fabric books for babies/children...fun learning books! I don't have anyone to make a book for in that age group, but I instantly fell in love with both their designs in the book and wanted to make one for myself! Maybe it's my inner child! Lol! So I adapted both their idea's to make a book for me! A stitchers book! This is the third and last week in the course, so it's not yet completed...so this is what I have done this week...


Kims pretty flowers...


I quite like the look of them with a small crochet motif...but still not sure if I will add a motif


The ribbon sun I have added a pocket to the front and is where I can keep my scissors, needles etc.


A little turtle design I made up for inside front pocket


The little houses I added some ribbon to hold my keys...now I know where my sewing room keys are!!


Inside back pocket...a little bee design I made up

Ribbon sun (again!) But I just love it! And I think that Manda's owl pins look adorable in it! I have also made a scallop edged pocket (underneath) which I will show next time...already very pic heavy post..lol!


Mardi's very clever little hand bag, holds my crafty business cards


Next time I will hopefully have a finished book to show!

Bye For Now
