Finished Florida fabric book

And another one done!

I showed you the start of this book in my last post: Florida Inspired

I had some metal shells that were charms on a charm bracelet from Primark.  They sometimes have inexpensive jewellery that you can take to pieces for elements for scrapbooking and mixed media that are cheaper than buying from art shops.  I painted these shells with acrylic paint.

I ironed Bondaweb on the back of each page and then ironed the pages together trapping the hinge/spine inside.

I sewed the signatures together using the sewing machine.  Here they are clipped together.

I used a preset stitch and variegated thread.  Sadly the stitching wasn't very straight on the third row.

And inside the book.

I'm really pleased with this book.  I've still got lots of squares left of the same fabric.  Shall I make a hanging?  Or make another book?  Or both?

Thanks for joining me today
