Yesterday I shared a photo of the prototype of my new fabric guest book. After tinkering and fussing a bit, I am so happy with the final results and want to share:
I have been picturing this book in my head for a while and just had not gotten the time to sit down, draw out the pattern and then figure out how I wanted to assemble it.
The cover has heavy mat board inserts that have been covered in batting before being covered so it has a solid structure but is padded and soft.
I made the sample in white silk dupinoi but can make it in any of the other fabrics and colors I offer. The flower color can also be any of the 41 colors I offer.
The silk cording stem on the cover winds around to the back of the book with an additional leaf.
The inside pages are stitched together and then adhered to the inside book binding. The pages are blank and have a deckled edge and are slightly staggered from one page to the next. I left the pages blank so that the book could be used as a guest book, a journal, a photo album, or scrapbook.
I like the idea of using blank pages for a guest book so that wedding guests can write messages to the bride and groom rather than just the traditional single signature line.
You can find the book and additional photos of it in my shop HERE.
