Book of Intentions Progress

Book Cover -- opened flat
Book Cover -- interior
I seldom post works in progress, but this will likely be one of those projects that takes years to complete -- if it ever get there LOL The book cover just terrified me ... a little too much like sewing LOL This is the cover of my Book of Intentions from Lisa Engelbrecht's class. We adhered strips of fabric to fusible webbing; mine wasn't holding well, so I stitched each strip afterward and also stitched gathered tulle to the edges for a neater finish on my cover.

This is beautiful. And wow, those soft, sweet colors are a new look for you! What? no grunge! hehehe! Seriously though, it's gorgeous!

I agree with what Angie wrote. Very beautiful indeed, and yes, I love these colors. Glad to see you're doing more sewing. Wish I could say the same for me. Well, hopefully I'll get to it for my fabric book. If that can't motivate me, what can?

I saw all those pretty colors and the fabric and thought, "Hmmm... I meant to clink on the link to Karen's blog." What a cool surprise!
