Fabric Art Book!!

After cruising through Pinterest for months now...one of the things that really fires up my biscuits... are the fabric art journals and books!! YUM!!! I want to make one really bad!!! Above is my first blank fabric book.

Over the next several weeks I will work on the pages inside and show them to you. I went to a decor fabric store and bought from the scrap bucket.

Here is my finished cover!! I am going to do a sewing theme book. See the lovely rose on the dress form?? My blog friend Dana from Lambs and Ivy Designs, gifted me with some of her wonderful hand made ribbon roses!! She is super talented. I told her one day I would put them in my art...so, I have kept my promise!! Thanks Dana, I love your roses. And the vine you made is going into this book as well. I will need to get with you and buy some more...I love them so much. I can't wait to finish this book. I think it will be one of my favorite mixed media projects I have done in a while!!

ATTENTION:  QUILTIE TRADERS--- ALL THE QUILTIES HAVE BEEN TRADED AND ARE IN THE MAIL AS OF TUESDAY!! LOOK FOR THEM SOON!!
