SEWN Pattern Portfolio

Part 1 of SEWN is done and what fun. My pattern portfolio is finished and i have LOTS of papers still to make more.
I chose to use a manila folder as my book cover. (Why? Well, I love folders and it was the perfect size)
Spent some time selecting that papers that would live happily together, and using a hexagon template provided my Mary Ann, I chopped away. Using a glue stick (a cheap one, not too strong) I dabbed a it of glue in the middle of each hexie and created my final design. (The pieces are sewn to the cover stock so you only need to keep them in place with the glue-don't use a ton because you might gum up the sewing machine needle)



And here is the inside cover. No, I'm not going to cover it with anything. Will just sign and date. I like to see all those zig-zags. (great excuse to use fun colors in your bobbin too!)


Thanks for stopping by!
