I really do enjoy making fat/chubby/mini, cute little books.
In the past I've made several accordion folded books that I filled with calligraphy quotations. I have also make a few domino books, filled with tiny images and messages.
My latest book making are these Woven Spine Fat Books. I am becoming so addicted to making them.
I'm grateful to Gaye Medbury for teaching the Woven Fat Book class through the Creative Workshop Website.
I can't stop now. My next fat book theme will be the beach.
I used a silky multi-colored ribbon to weave the spine on this book and embellished the waxed threads with spring colored beads.
Images and quotes of springtime are on little slips of card stock tucked into the pockets inside the book.
There are pockets inside this book too but I haven't decided what I would like to put into them. Perhaps song titles and images of instruments. Humm...I'm not sure yet.
I used black and white fabric strips to weave the spine on this book and then added jingle bells and beads to the waxed threads.
I created the images on the cover of the Sing/Listen fat book by digitally altering several different images I had purchased years ago from June MacFarlane.
