Then there were three...again


I really enjoy making books(and covering them), think it must tie in with my love of storage of any description and stationery!
Have finally completed the final book in a set of three that i started a few weeks ago, seem to be making a habit of making things in 3s.
The covers are made from mixed fibres, mainly fancy yarns and snippets of fabric, sandwiched between water soluble vilene then stitched. Free machine applique, machined cords, buttons and beads were then added as embellishments.
I painted and printed onto some of the sheets of paper to be included as the pages, others i left plain. The lining of the books were made from painted and stamped(good old anagypta) pelmet vilene which was then stitched into place.
The final bit was stitching in the pages, which my machine didn't seem to mind at all. Now i need to put them to good use....
