Pretty in Pink Fabric Book

My first fabric book was made for a Creative Button Swap in 2011. My second was for Laurie's Breakfast at Tiffany's fabric book swap in 2012, where eight of us each created eight pages. Laurie then compiled a page from each of us into books.  I love this medium, and had been wanting to create more books. I can't resist vintage linens and lace but many pieces are too damaged to use in their entirety. These books are a wonderful way to preserve bits and pieces that might not get used otherwise, and a perfect use for buttons and other things in my stash such as the pink tulle corsage on the cover.

I'm not usually a pink person but have really been into it lately. My friend Laurie has been creating in pink recently, too, so this book was made for her. I won't describe each page as there are several. Lot's of photos coming up!





The book was delivered to Laurie just before Valentine's Day along with some pieces for a swap (more on that soon.) Hope you've enjoyed looking. I have a couple of other books in the works and hope to finish them in the next few months.
