Show Off Monday



I'm participating in 'Show Off Monday' at Etsy Cottage Style. I thought maybe this would help me get a few projects done that I've been piddlin' along on.




I have already shown a few pages from this book that I started back in June. But I finally got it done.









The book is filled with pockets throughout, so I can tuck in little notes.






In the center of the book, I added a few blank paper pages for some journaling.









This was my first try at making a fabric book. I'm happy with the results, but can't wait to try another one and hopefully improve my book making skills.



Go on over to Etsy Cottage Style, and see what other crafters have been doing.

Beautiful book Debi. Such lovely work you've done.
I've been wanting to make this style of book too, but it feels a little daunting when I think about how much time it will take me. x

Hi Debi! Thanks for stopping by my Blog. Your Fabric Journal is amazing. So edwardian looking. I see a girl with lace and petticoats sitting in a garden holding that book. What an Inspiration.
