a new book

Hello friends, i want to share with you this tutorial --- making your own fabric book.
I love the book binding technique and I love the artsy feel to this book.
This book is dedicated to all mothers out there.
Hope you  have a great day yesterday.
This book titled "Dance of Life" ... celebrates the dance, the rythm we have to move to everyday.
We wake up... say a prayer... tend to our children... work (if you are a working mom).... tend to the needs of our husband.... celebrate our life journey.
It is a great journey. Give yourself a pat on the back!
I celebrate with you.

I made this journal for a special person to document her journey.
To celebrate life... to dance to whatever life throws her way and still smile!

I have 6 signatures of papers inside... stitched them together and wrap a doily around it. Dont you love the look of that crotched doily. It is steal at $2. haha... mothers are known to sniff out great deals, dont we!

I created these book pages (6x8inches) with Prima ledger papers... i love these papers... so versatile

And for the cover, I prepared a calico cloth,  a piece of batting and a chipboard. Wrap them up.. i just love the pillow feel of the cover. YOu dont have to sew... just glue everything down with Fabric glue. Fast and easy. Dont we mothers love anything that is fast and easy???  

Okie...I hope you are inspired to create something for yourself! Celebrate the life God has given you!
