little book

When we arrived there was a sheet of 18 X 24 Rive paper (cream) on our table. We were to use this as an under sheet to protect the table from messes. On day 3 we cut it into tiny pieces and used long stitch to sew 3 sheet signatures. Then we used embroidery floss to weave the signatures together. Tedious with a beautiful outcome. If you look, you can see all my mistakes... The book is 2.5" X 3.5"


These were all unintentional marks made while working for 3 days. We sewed the signatures with waxed linen and left the tails long. I braided mine.

  1. I love the accidental markings. It has an Asian feel, somehow. Very simple. Very beautiful.
