I've been working with a publisher in London on a possible book project. I thought it would be fun to share a sampling of what will be inside...
This is one of my favorite ways to wrap gifts - a sewn pouch. This particular one contains a book for a reader young or old.
I has some victorianish digital clip art from Dover and some old paper sample books that had some cool textured flysheets in it. I ripped out the sheets and trimmed to 8.5" x 11" and printed the girl... the cat was printed on some backing from another sample book. (re-purpose, re-use!)
First, I sewed (yup - sewed) the girl print to another sheet of similar paper on three sides. Then i carefully stuffed it with the tissue-wrapped book. Taking care not to sew over tissue or book, i stitched the remaining side shut.
Kitty tag was attached with a couple of eyelets and a punch.
