 Fabric covered book
Fabric from ebay, bookbinding supplies from Daniel Smith, embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching
Remember how I said I was going to experiment with fabric covered books? Done and done.

I interfaced the fabric before using it to make it stiffer and then pretty much treated it like paper. This worked except for the corners, which at first just jutted out and looked gross. A large amount of glue and now they're happily in place.
I wasn't sure how this would work out and I'm pretty happy it did! Fabric is my favorite medium, after all :-P

Fabric Covered Bookmarks
Fabric from Reprodepot, davey board from Daniel Smith
To go with a fabric covered book, one might also want fabric covered bookmarks. Made these for a student group fundraiser and they all sold. Yay! I think they're pretty self-explanatory. Unfortunately, they give me yet another reason to hoard my fabric remnants.

I have another project in the works that I hope to be finished this weekend. Which means it will be posted in a week or two or five :-)

I thought the bookmarks were ties at first (:^) Great job on the book! Maybe the fabric was too thick to bend with the interfacing at each corner; suggestion -- before you attach the interfacing to the fabric, cut out the corners.
