For my first guest post for SpiegelMom Scraps I decided to make use of the gorgeous sequins. I used two mixes – you can find all the sequins, mixes and plain, here.

I recycled an old fabric sample swatch for this little mditative fabric mini book. I didn’t want a very neat finish so I just used a zig zag sewing machine stitch around the edges of my fabric to prevent too much fraying and left a few loose threads on show.

When I had my page blanks sewn I pulled out a couple of stencils and some modelling paste. I picked through the words on the stencil and made my own sentence…

It reads,
“release yesterday and the day before that
surrender today and tomorrow.
find art and beauty”

When my modelling paste was dry I went through hand sewing a few sequins on each page. Where possible I added a sequin on both sides of the fabric so none of the stitches were showing on the reverse side of the page.

When I had all my pages complete I bound the book with some fairly loose stitches and some buttons. If the binding stitches were too tight it became hard to turn the pages.

I’ll be back through out the month to share some more projects using Spiegel Mom Scraps products. I can tell there is a mini album coming up in a couple of weeks packed full of sequins, ribbon and wood veneer! Stay tuned!
