Fabric Book

I finally got around to scanning the papers I made for my son, after several attempts to get some serious work done yesterday and foiled at every turn, I decided instead to do something fun and make the signatures for the book.

I machine stitched the signatures to craft vilene, I used a thick linen thread, which my machine did not like at all. I then stitched the rug spine to the same craft vilene.
Not how Traci B does hers, but I haven't received my DVD yet and was too impatient to wait.

I love how the spine has turned out with the metallic colours next time I shall do lots more signatures and a wider spine, but I wanted to get one made to have the process in my head

That spine looks really good. Like you say you have to make the first one to get the idea in your head, the second one is always easier.
I hand sewed my signatures in, took me an age to do - doh!

I love the spine and the colors as well. Is there a tutorial for these somewhere? I love the Orangey Missy Purple showed on her blog earlier this month.

This looks great Carol. The spine looks wonderful - great selection of fabric colours.
