I am having a lot of fun making this bookcover and all of the techniques that are in the book that we are working out of. I think that when I get a book I dig through it too fast and don't catch all the goodies that can be found inside. I think that is why this challenge is so great because it is encouraging me to go through the book slower.
I have decided to lay ribbon and cording over the top of my bookcover to bring all of the colors together. I am stitching over the top using some metallic copper thread in a zig-zag stitch.
Here is my next technique which I have fallen in absolute love...
My next goal is to make some cording to wrap around and create some kinda closure. Maybe add a tassel. Don't know yet.
You can head on over to mom's blog at Glenda Bailey's Blog to check out her progress. She is about as far along as I am which is funny because I have a tendency to work a lot faster than her. She is making a beautiful lacy bookcover. It will be awesome to see how different ours are in the end.
