Fabric Art Books

Hi, I said last time I would show you my books, these are my favourite things to make but are quite time consuming due to all the embellishment on the covers. The pages are paper and/or card and are hand torn along the edges to give them a more rustic effect! So let me explain the process.... I make 2 little fabric quilts , all completely handstitched then I paint, stamp or stencil them, then I add any scraps of fabric,lace ,yarn , buttons, beads or found objects.Hand embroidery is also added, cross stitches, french knots etc. Then I make a spine and sew them all together and finally stitch in the papers and voila....
