This week at Theme Thursday the theme was bookmarks.
This is not the best photo, but here is a better detail. I’d just gotten home from my Thanksgiving travels with a bunch of fabric sample books my sister-in-law scored from a friend. There were so many to choose from, but I realized I wanted something fairly simple to then add to. I chose a striped blue cotton and then printed a stamp several times (Inkadinkado, gemstones) and then small bubble wrap with light gold paint. I cut a spiral out of angelina and added a small border of angelina as well, then hand stitched it all down. This was my first foray into angelina and I found I really liked just creating sheets of it to then cut up. I’m excited to use the bookmark too….I’m in the middle of Robertson Davies’ Cornish Trilogy. Thanks for looking!
