i'm really pleased with this............

i've been wanting to have a go at making a fabric book for some time now, so when i saw march's challenge over on vanilla sugar it pushed me forward :)

i made it using just plain pastel coloured cottons. the 'pages' are cream and the cover is purple on the outside and pink on the inside (only because i didn't have enough of either colour to do it all the same!!)





so,then i needed to decorate the cover........i decided to use the colour scheme in the whispers of colour challenge over on bubbly scrumptious it's a weekly challenge and this one was set saturday 6th march so i'm a bit late with it!!!!........the colours to use were peach,lemon or cream and pink.....i misread it and did lemon,cream and pink!!! (well at least i tried LOL)











i'm planning on using this book to put in little samplers of fabric work.....no theme,just going with the flow :)
