mini book with tags

Joined a bookmaking class in a yahoo group--as if I need
to be encouraged to make books!



That dreamy face and background stamp are from the Years Ago
set available at Blockheads.



This one is an X book with pockets--it's only a little more than
2 1/2 inches square.



You can see I filled the pockets with tags and sewing bits,
trimmed with vintage crocheted edging,



silky seam binding, and those sewing stamps, aren't they
perfect for this?



The vintage looking light bulb shaped pins and all the fun tags
are from Altered Pages . . .



Okay, I know the honey bee and flower don't quite go with the theme,
but it's "sew sweet," yes?



It was sew much fun to make! Ooooh, you are sew right, those
puns--uncalled for--sorry about that, couldn't help myself . . .

:)

PS. There have been a few questions about the sewing set--the spool
of thread and thimble are my favorites from it, but there are three
pairs of fancy scissors plus more. You can see it HERE.

Oh Trisha, I just love the vintage feel of this. It looks like something I would set to display on my antique sewing machine. Very cool.
