It doesn't happen very often, but when it does it comes in a torrent! Recently I've been the lucky recipient of a number of prizes, one of them being gorgeous screenprinted fabric from greenolive. I told Martine I'd make something pretty special to do justice to the fabric, and I think I might have pulled it off. But if I haven't, I've had a lot of fun trying!
I made a box for socks, just for me, just because.
And because the type fabric was too adorable to resist doing something book-ish with it, I made a book cover with bookmark included. I think I need to make another cover for those skinnier novels, too. The instructions used were from Zakka Sewing, and I customised it for my copy of 'The Book Thief' (and other thicker novels in my future).
Has anyone read 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak? All my friends have told me how wonderful it is, but for some reason I found it hard to get into. Actually, a correction. I found it easy to get into - the writing is very beautiful and the story captivating - but I found it hard to escape the vivid dreams that came after reading the book at night. I'm going to try reading it again now I'm in a more relaxed state of mind.
