First fabric book


Dear friends,
I want to do a fabric journal and have finally started. I found this old piece of cross stitch that I did years ago and am using this as the cover. I have already started my first pages and will post them when they are finished.
lots of love from susan in australia

Very pretty! I wish I could learn how to cross stitch! Maybe one day. Great job!

I did one of these years ago! It was very challenging as fabric is for artists that really know their stuff! I got by ok with a total mixed media composition. You are very talented and obviously will produce a beauty!

I've made fabric journal covers but not the actual journaling in fabric. It will be interesting to see how this goes for you.

Happy New Year.

How wonderful to have something made by you in the past to gaze upon as you begin to create within it's pages! I love the colors and flowers!

Isn't it FUN to use up something that has been hanging around for awhile!
GREAT JOB!!!
