Book Binding

I've always wanted to have a go at book binding but never managed to get round to it. Here is a simple tutorial from Diane Gilleland Crafty Pod with an additonal link for the book binding stitch technique.

Toy Box...Cut and Sew

Hi, here are some snipets from my cloth baby book: Toy Box.

Its a cut a sew pattern on spoonflower's competition. A perfect idea for for my new nephew. It has images of layered toys to look like you've cut and appliqu├ęd them yourself. Also, I've created a linen texture on the fabric to give it a hint of realism and clipped the toys in felt. Check out Niki's Photoshop Tutorial. It's also entered at spoonflower's cloth book competition.

Sew...a needle running thread!

It's been a very long time since I have updated my blog ;-(.
Unfortunately, I don't have the time or the web connection (long story) to upload on a regular basis.
But today I thought I'd make a special effort to record a project I have made for my new nephew Jaxon. I wanted a piece that would be handmade (not got a sewing machine) and would be personal to him (which was a little tricky as he's just been born)...and voila a name banner. I got the idea from a blog site 'Made by Rae'. Check it out. Hope you enjoy. Craftbelle
