Did you have a great Christmas? Are you ready for 2010???
Someone, please take my Mod Podge away for a minute.
I selfishly kept one of the Moleskine three-pack notebooks for myself. The other two were “personalized” for hubby for Christmas. And then I got out my selvage collection. And my Mod Podge.
I sewed the selvages first and then applied Mod Podge and trimmed up the edges when the Mod Podge was dry.
I left some extra fabric on the selvage at the spine so I could just wrap it around before sewing the next selvage (I also did this on the very last selvage and folded the fabric to the inside):
All Kaffe fabrics, no repeats (I did allow same print, different colorway).
I tried to use the selvages with the most information closest together. Some were spread out too far; some didn’t have the color dots. It was very informative. Well, and fun.
The selvage notebook was a little diversion. I’ve been appliqueing and such. A trained monkey could have learned to buttonhole stitch in the time it took me to re-acquaint myself with it.
Lacy edge effect. I meant to do that.
Happy New Year’s Eve eve!
