I have always enjoyed ‘slow stitching’ – just making whatever you want, using whatever stitches you like – adding as few or many as you feel.
I have kept separate pages so that you can just take one page with you wherever you go.
I add pieces of vintage fabric, some little words, printed matter, pictures, buttons, lace, – the possibility is endless.
The kit is suitable for everyone – if you can thread a needle, you can make a book.
Included in the kit is everything (and more), you will need to complete the book – excluding needle and thread.
I use a fairly fine needle and cream thread, but you may prefer to use coloured threads – whatever you like.
5 x pieces of vintage quilt (measuring approx 5″ square)
little pieces of fabric (mostly cut from vintage quilts)
Pieces of embroidery, lace and buttons.
Printed paper – taken from a book in very poor condition (Winne the Pooh) – so you can pick out words to use if you like.
You can add pages, or use little pieces of fabric/lace/ buttons that have meaning to you – Granny’s apron, Daughters pocket, etc. Anything.
The book is then held together with just two pieces of ribbon. I use a sharp darning needle to push through all layers and then tie in a bow – this way, should you decide to add another page, you just undo the ribbons.
I have added photos of my own little book, just to give you the idea !
