Summer School 3

I mentioned in my last Summer School post that I had chosen to make a not-a-book.

So what is a not-a-book?

Well, it's when you put fabric together which could be folded up and made into a book but isn't folded into a book!

I'm not sure that is any clearer.

I cut up bits of my fabric in different sizes and machined them together. 

I put bits of fabric onto Mistyfuse to use as collage bits.

I put lots of pleats into the strip of fabrics.  I used the preset stitches on my machine.

I've attached the fabric strip a piece of  Pelmet Vileneand machined it some more.

This is finished for now.  I may come back to it when I've finished other pieces and add some hand stitching.

Thanks for joining me today


  1. Like where you are going with this. Looking forward to seeing it’s progression.

    I can see why you call it a not-a-book! It’s wonderfully textured and captures the feel of a street of old buildings.
