Book Wrap

I laid the interfacing, glue side up on my workbench.
Laid my hand dyed linen on top and ironed.

Then I laid ribbons and yarn and free motion stitched,
 to keep everything in place.
Laid some yarn under organza and stitched.
I curled-up som organza with a heat gun.
Free motion stitched it in place.
Cut it up the size I want.
Stitched  some yarn around the edges.
Added strap to wrap around.
And a strap inside to stop the book from falling out.
There it is.
Based on an article In the Quilting Art Magazine issue 29.
