Fabric Paper Book

This is a small book I made out of one of the sheets of fabric paper I have made. There is lot of talk on some of the art groups and yahoo art groups about fabric paper. I decided I had better make something with it or it would just be another one of those things that sits around.


I was reading about an updated way to use one sheet of something - in this case canvas - to make a book in Paper, Cloth, and Scissors magazine by Debbi Crane. I remember doing this with paper when I was in school. It occurred to me that this would be a great thing to try with the fabric paper.


I decided to just fold my fabric paper and make a book. After I made the one cut and made the book, I sewed the fabric paper with my sewing machine. I did this very randomly. I sewed the pages together last. I then added some more images and went to a box of trades an embellishments an added what I thought was appropriate. This was a fun little book to make. You can see the original fabric paper a few posts down.
