Sweet Little Books of Lace

I came across some cute little books a few weeks ago
Ordered them not knowing what exactly to use them for

When I got them I knew..
so I removed the original pages from the inside

replaced them with handsewn pages of lace

lots of lace
with lots of details

here´s a few of the pages

decorated the book covers
and the inside of the covers too

using fabric images, cheesecloth and
old paper

These are just perfect for little bits and pieces
and left overs from other projects.

And perfect for a sweet little decoration too.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
sweet friends
Tina ♥♥♥

Hvor er de henrivende! Og så yndige med alle blonderne.
Virkelig en god idé at gemme 'rester' fra tidligere kreationer i dem...

Just beautiful. I have a few projects on the table where I have been printing directly on fabric. Love that look. I'm actually sewing on fabric now instead of paper all the time! lol
