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

    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.
