Book Swap #10 - CinderLisaDesign

Lisa, known on Etsy as CinderLisaDesign, shared this book in our recent swap.

Lisa says this is "a quilted backwards/forwards envelope journal, with mixed blank papers of varying thicknesses in shades of tan, pink, and a little bit of blue. There are 288 pages. I call it the Flower Burst. The cover is felted wool covered with designer fabric in a fun pink and red flower motif, and lined with a simple cotton print that echoes the geometric circles from the outer fabric. I machine quilted some haphazard lines through the cover in intersecting lines, then sewed my edges in and longstitched the book together with DMC floss. The cover is cut a little long for the backwards/forwards envelope look, and wraps around the spine. I like making these books because they kind of remind me of little handbags—except they're full of pages!"
