FABRIC COVERED BOOK
Here is my fun little project. You all know how I love fabric.... Some of my daughter's books are in quite bad shape. Actually we bought this hardcover book of Black Beauty at a second hand shop and it was in need of a facelift.
I covered the entire book with fabric by Michael Miller (I actually plan on doing this for her school binders this fall). I used some 7-gypsies ribbon tape for the binding.
The main detail is this new image in today's hop. It is "Well Read" and I stamped it with Versacraft ink on both plain cotton fabric and patterned fabric (so that I could fabric piece the couch). I colored the rest of the image with my copics. My white fabric has polka dots on it so that when I colored it the polka dots really showed up.
I then cut it out with a spellbinders nestability die. I ran it through my creatopia (by xyron) to add adhesive to the back side and then added it to the front.
Here is a look at the inside where I colored outside of the image to add some shading.
So who is next on the hop?....It is the wonderful BARBARA. Go and enjoy her fabulous eye candy!
