We call it a "rug" book because a couple of years
ago, Sally started one of the woven cuffs and
woven it both up and down instead of the way
we were doing it... just one way.
So she ended up with a really thick
piece of woven fabric... thus, "the rug".
Sally surprised me a few weeks ago
with a finished "rug book" project and
I got inspired by her, to take it in the same
direction. Although I did not remember what
her rug book looked like, I bought my batik
fabricsat the quilt show
in Hendersonville, and started weaving.
I must say that it does take a lot longer
to weave the cuff ribbon both ways.
These batik fabrics
really got me going.
and a photo transfer sewn
on with 2 little buttons for embellishment.
for interest, that I received as a gift
from Wendy McEntire, on some
140# watercolor paper.
I used waxed lined to sew the signatures
together with a simple pamphlet stitch.
"handmade" with Golden Fluid Matte Medium.
Here is Sally Casper's inspiration book
that got this whole thing started.
