Pink and Purple Flowered Book
Sometimes working on a project provides a great distraction from the news cycle of unhappy events. ones that are hard to ignore, ones that sharply divide people with both sides being right and both sides ignoring the other.
Doing something useful, something that has a beginning and an end is my way to deal with my thoughts.
Yesterday, I posted a photo of the beginning of a book cover.
Today I finished it.
It didn’t take long–some random stitching to suggest flowers, measuring out the size of the Marble notebook, sewing the two seams—and this time I decided to try serging the seams.
That worked well to limit raveling but was too bulky to permit the book to be inserted–so a bit of un-sewing occurred
I ended up doing a bit of hand-stitching to secure the fraying edges of the sheer—I need to be more generous if I try this again.
And here it is.
It looks quite delicate–and very feminine—I am more of the jeans and T-shirt type—I may use it or I may put it in the stack of books to sell at the next vendor opportunity.
