I was cleaning out my small cupboard full of fabric what nots. I found a piece of old lace that I'd painted with rose acrylic , unwashed, harden [and forgotten] tucked in the back. This little lace, inspired me to create a tiny fabric love notebook which I like to share here. Armed with 4th-grade sewing, I set to work :).
The lace, painted in acrylic and left dried for maybe months :). It feels hard like a 'crepe' or a 'soft' taco shell. Perfect as book/journal covers.
This tiny fabric book measures about 4" X 3" in size.
I hand-stitched everything, each page, every little hearts and all pages to the lace cover. I think it's more organic & romantic that way, with frays and all. [Yeah, need to get that sewing machine fixed!].
I took two small rectangle fabrics, stitched them two-by-two on the corners for extra thickness. I made seven sets of these, so I would have 28 pages in total. [28 days of February?]. Arranged them like pancakes onto the lace cover (on far left end of the lace). Sewed in the middle [with running stitch) so that they would open like a book. Then sewed & tied a ribbon for closure. You can opt this out, and use buttons or velcro instead.
Here are some pages in the fabric book;
It's fun to add beads or button on the hearts too :).
I have yet to add little notes to these pages;
Key to my heart :).
I can't help to make the letter 'S' kissing!.
I crochet a circle and add to a heart.
The last page.
I have to show the edges. Does this not look like the yummiest lasagna? LOL.
I guess, LOVE is in the air :). My first Valentine project for the year!. This should be a cheap project, since you may already have all the materials handy :). Hope you'll try this too. HUGS.
