Lauren’s Forgotten Book

Started hunting for some material which I desperately needed when I came across this little book which was started over a year ago with my granddaughter Lauren. Material forgotten about at this stage.

Lauren wanted to learn how to sew and this is what she wanted to make. We both started off with some hessian cloth or burlap as it’s also known for the outside. Used a striped material for the inner and stitched to the hessian. Lauren lost interest at this stage so I put it away ready to finish later.

Nearly finished the inside I still want to put in a few pages for additional photos to be added but have to leave it again until I have finished the project which I needed the material for in the first place.

    This looks wonderful Shirley. I am hoping, at some point, to bring more fabric into my creations. I love stamping onto fabric as well as using it because it gives that wonderful texture and depth.
    Just wanted to pop over to thank you for the lovely comments you have left on my blog – they mean a lot so thank you!
    I’m not sure what the infusions are that you talk about for your RA. I’m a bit of a pain because along with joint pain I get dreadful back pain too, because of car accidents. I’m on some strong pain killers for that as well as anti inflammatories.
    For the last couple of years the hospital had me on methotrexate tablets but the after effects were just awful. Earlier this year I finally got them to change the meds and now I have to inject myself once a week, yeuch!, with the meth again. Thankfully this has cut down a lot on the after effects of those meds. But I now have not got much of an immune system and whenever I get/catch anything it’s a lot worse than it would be for a ‘normal’ person – not sure what one of those is but I’m completely fed up of being a ‘special’ one lol! hugs Karen x

    Hi Shirl, I really like the look of this little book and I bet it feels so lovely to hold too. Gorgeous little scraps of material on the cover and the pages inside are delightful. I think I would use a couple of pages for storing my beaded pins then I wouldn’t keep losing them! Great project to have found and hopefully finish off. How about sharing it on “Forgotten Things” at Our Creative Corner? Margie x

    Hi Shirl, so pleased that you found this because it is a stunner and it would have been such a shame not to finish it. I love the stamping onto fabric and the wonderful Paris theme. This is so beautiful! Thanks so much for joining in our Forgotten Things Challenge at Our Creative Corner. Hugs, Anne x
