Sister’s Bookmaking Afternoon
How often do I take the opportunity to teach others cool projects? Almost never! But I’m trying to change that by inviting family and friends over to play. On Thursday morning I called my big sister in Eugene and invited her to come create a book of her choice. My sister is a quilter and maker of anything in fabric or fiber (weaving, crochet, etc..) but she had never tried her hand with books. After showing her a bunch of book style examples, she decided to create a 20 page album with hemp-leaf binding (Asa noha toji). I worked right along side her with the same design. It took us about 5 hours to complete. Below are some images of her working and the finished books.
Here is the happy participant ready to work.
Our basic tools:
Finished front and back cover. Beautiful paper choice Kim! She was so happy to have such a wide choice of paper to choose from. Yes, I’m a paper junkie and she is a fabric junkie.
A happy sister with her completed book!
