Covered Notebook Swap


I cut it a bit fine with this swap - deadline 30 November and it didn't go to post until the 29th - so it needs a wing and prayer to get there on time!! I used paper lame punched into denim, purple and turquoise, and really liked the effect. I had left over cut outs from making stars on copper foiled fusible vilene, so tucked those in under rows of machine embroidery and it came out well I thought. For a change I glued the fabric to the notebook rather than making it into a wallet. Note for next time, denim is a little thick so try on cotton or felt if glueing. Because of the sparkly, reflective nature of the paper lame the photo isn't great.
