In trying out different things with this pouch "binding" that I have been working on, I decided that I like the stitching idea. Since the sewing machine needle gets hung up with the sticky from the tape I have another idea that works. Create the fabric side pieces on the machine and then glue them to the sides of the pouch. It gives the same effect.
I have a bunch of mail art that comes to me over time. Of course I keep the art part but I don't throw the envelope away wanting to incorporate it somehow into a piece of art. There are wonderful pieces of ephemera already stuck to many of the envelopes. These are treasures!
In this case, I took the envelopes and stitched three signatures together using the pamphlet stitch. Then I stitched the three signatures together with a variation of the pamphlet stitch. The new journal will now go into one of my new pouches. So easy-peasy! I am thinking I might even take it on vacation to work in when I have a bit of down time. I hate wasting time....even on vacation. Driven!
Wonderful John, again!
What a cool thing to do!! Love this. And thanks so much for the fabulous postcard I got from you this week! xo
Driven - or obsessive?! You certainly manage to make a lot of art. Keep on going.
Proud to be in your collection. :-)
