now i have 9 pieces of old Jeans stitched Journal pages which i can collect under the theme of "sea" and it is time to think about a binding...
the original plan was to sew them together and make a scroll.
now i realized rolling them all together would make a very thick scroll, and: the stiffened papers do not want to be rolled so easily.
hmmm, the pages are all of the same height (approx.), but of different length.
i stashed them from Long to short:
i could make the Long ones shorter by bending them:
this is possible to all of the longer pieces except the penguins on the iceberg, where i sewed the papers overlapping and so can´t bend...
but maybe... i could bind the pages by Setting big eyelets / grommets on the left and join them with yarn, fabric etc.
the large one might become part of a Kind of back cover, which i could sew to a front cover ~ still to be made ... no real Details in my thoughts so far...
but maybe i could add a stenciled title ("the sea") and stitch around.
and add this octopus (printed onto glasses-cleaning-paper):
i LOVE this old style octopus...
it is part of a font i bought at designcuts.com - titled "microbrew ornaments"
that´s what is brewing in my mind...
but first i have to make a Little break from stitching (my saddle-Joint of the left thumb is complaining a bit)
will Show you when finished.
when you read this scheduled post i´m spending a few days in Dresden with "the usual suspects" (we are a Group of four women making a city-travel every year... prague, Stockholm, Heidelberg, Amsterdam, Edinburgh already visited)
