|A worn out piece of paper with more holes in it than a golf course|
I have been itching to cut into my August collection that my husband got me for Christmas (is he not the best?!), so I figured who better to do that for than me! I went with an improv feel for this. I didn't have a plan in mind at all, besides that I wanted a lion and antelope featured. The rest just flowed. It feels good to be creative!
I did some straight line quilting every quarter inch on the outside only. I didn't feel like doing any binding, so I sewed the lining to the outer panel with the right sides together, leaving a gap to turn it right side out. Then I top stitched around the outer edge to tack it all down after righting it. Worked like a charm!
I attached two pieces of felt to the inside with a straight stitch down the centre of the book. This makes the pages.
