whatcha reading?Thursday, July 02, 2009
I received this book last fall and immediately earmarked several projects. The book then got placed alongside my knitting books and was sort of forgotten until Libby started reading a book she thought she couldn't read around her brothers. The back cover had some "girl content" and she knew they would see it.
I remembered the book cover project which was perfect for concealing what she wanted to hide.
We picked out some fabric and used a contrasting brown linen scrap for the lining. A ribbon saved from a gift from my sisters travels to Italy. Gusto: Vigorous enjoyment. Perfect.
There are several other projects in the book I would love to make.
A new apron may be in order. I'm thinking brown linen would be nice.
And maybe a new set of summertime coasters.
