I’ve been trying a couple of new projects lately. The first is for the next issue of Fibre&Stitch. The theme of this issue is “Books”. I tried to get all creative and original which ended up causing a lot of stress, but in the end, turned out okay, I think.
This is a small photo album made entirely from scratch. I had to dig around to find hard-copies of pictures to display. Now that everything is digital, I rarely get pictures printed.
This one holds 6 pictures and would make a great brag book for Grandma.
The other thing I tried was a bolster pillow.
This was pretty fun to figure out, although the finished product looks like a huge piece of candy. Mmmmm. The boys keep pretending to eat it and they love the shape. I think it might be nice if Mommy made them a more boyish one, don’t you? Bolsters are hugely pricey at JoAnn’s. I went to a nearby decorating shop and got a smaller down-filled one. Great size, great price, but wrong filler for me. I gotta find me a better bolster supplier.
