Fabric Book Update

I have been working out the logistics for putting my fabric book pages together from the Traveling Pages Swap. I am going to make an accordion style book. Right now I have the pages pinned together and this shows the backs of the pages.

Here's the fronts. It's not very sturdy with just the pins holding it. I am planning on adding twigs for legs at all the page junctures.
Here it is all folded up with the bark covers that I wet felted and then hand stitched with stem stitch.
I think it kind of looks like a burger with little lettuce bits sticking out. I've got to cut the sticks to size and then start assembling. It should be a bit fiddly so I'm not really looking forward to the process. Hopefully, it will go more smoothly than anticipated!

Love the felt 'bark'! And twigs to connect! Beautiful, don't forget to post the finished result.

Love the handmade cover.

Once you connect a few pages you'll get the process down. Starting is always the hardest part.
