So many of you have signed up for the Remains of the Day class from Mary Ann Moss. I was hesitant at first since I had only used a sewing machine once or twice and was a bit intimidated. Well, encouragement from some friends spurred me to purchase a simple machine and try the class.
I did make the cover, but I did not love it, knowing me as you do - I love paper, and so a fabric cover was hard for me. So what I have done was used her class and added my own style to it. I found my pages fit into the covers of an antique bound magazine perfectly. I still need to alter the cover, but I was eager to stitch in the signatures I had made.
I loved Mary Ann's way of creating pages for my signatures, but again, I could not rely completely on sewing. I had to tape and paste some things in as well. I even tore some pages out of a journal I had made a while back that I was not happy with the spiral binding so I could cut and sew them in as well. So now I like doing that, collaging a part of a page then sewing it in amidst the rest.
So here are some photos of my pages that I made into a slide show -I only am showing you my favourites - I have 3 signatures of 6 sewn in this book (I used the Teesha Moore style of stitching) so that is a lot of pages and would bore you I am certain).
