I played with scraps today. Green ones to be exact. I made a slab. I think that is what this is called. It was actually a lot of fun but it took a fair chunk of time. It was sort of like puzzle building. I tried to cut as little as possible so it took a bit to find pieces that fit together well. The whole idea was to get a piece of patchwork that measured 12" by 29" so I could cover this composition book and make a fabric covered journal. I used Rachel's tutorial from the other day. I did make a few booboos as this was going together and I did need to line it because the black and white print on the book showed through the fabric but I think it looks awesome!!!! And I used a bunch of my green scraps which are threatening to take over my life.
I ordered the composition books from Staples. They are on sale right now. $1.99 each for those of us in Canada. They arrived the next day. That made me happy!
And here it is all finished.
Then I got smarter and made a second one. Less piecing more big chunks of fabric. I really like this one!!!
