18 Jul Fabric Altered Book Craft Party
Yesterday we were excited to have Lesley Riley teach the Fabric Altered Book Craft Party! An artist, writer and international instructor, it was a treat to have her teach at The Muse! (& if you missed out… she is teaching again this September 18th)
We began by picking out our board book that Lesley brought for all of us. She showed us how to cover the pages with fabric to begin our book. We got to pick out our favorites from her mound of fabric!
Using TAP, a photo transfer product, we learned how to transfer images. She showed us how to transfer on colored fabrics as well as white. We got busy making our books!
While we worked, we learned about other ephemera and materials that we could add to our book. The books are beautiful as they are, but over time, they will grow and change. Here are some pictures of our works in progress!
