Notebook Covers/ATC's

I finally have my computer back from the Computer Dr. It was one sick computer!!! Turned itself on in the middle of the night - just like it had a mind of its own. Turned itself off ALL the time - until it decided it just didn't want to work at all. So sorry if I haven't replied to any messages or acknowledged comments - but now we're back, me and my computer!!! All fixed and raring to go!!!!!




I have made 2 more notebook covers as they're such fun to make and so easy to put together. Mum received one for Mothers Day, and the other one is for a special friend. I now need to learn how to dye my own fabric to make lots more with. I have the dye - just need a few days to myself to get started. Next week is looking okay at the moment - keep my fingers crossed!!



Remember this fabric? Maybe not - well now it is ATC's.

I was wondering where you had gone suddenly. Wow these are real work of art, the are gorgeous.

Wow Di - the texture on these cards is spectacular. Was that one piece of handmade fabric cut into six? Do tell us what you made it out of.

Hi Cathie, couldn't find an email for you to answer your question, so I'll post it here. It was a whole piece of fabric and cut up (it's always hard to cut up a piece of fabric that you've made). I had a base fabric, then layed circles of lots of different fabrics over the top and did fme and hand stitching. Then zapped with the heat gun so some of the layers melted back.
