I've been looking longingly at Becky Shander's article in Somerset Life and wanting to try my hand at producing a little fabric book necklace and this weekend I had a go.
Wanting to display them on a different background meant I gained a visitor who thought I had got it just for him!
and I experimented with a few more lace colours and words like, Hope, Joy, Peace and Love.
These little books are made with lace folded over with some dryer sheets or muslin/gauzy fabric inside. Little words hand stamped on other bits of material form the front with the addtion of some pearls, rhine stones and on one (and on Becky's original) a rusty safety pin holds it all together. Then a piece of string sewn in at the top provides the chain - such a lovely idea. One of these is going off to a friend tomorrow.
And all the time I had company with me of course!
I love Becky's work and hope you get a chance to pop over there and look too!
