Time to marry this love with one of my others—books! And books and more books….I’m the kind of reader that goes into Goodwill with $5 and comes out with five books. The kind of reader that goes to the library once a week and comes out with six books (do they all get read? Hell no.). I am a book hoarder. So it makes sense that I’d eventually fall in love with book arts. Especially the kind that are stitched and/or pieced together with fabric.

These are just a few lovelies that have popped up on my radar.

If you’re looking for more inspiration, I urge you to run, not walk, to Pinterest, and type “fabric book” into the search box. See what delights meet your eyeballs!
