I want to make an accordion (?zig-zag?) fabric book but can anyone help with the following questions?
What is the best way to do this? Should I make individual pages and stitch them together or should I make "dummy" pages and stitch onto one long length of background fabric?
What is the best way to either stiffen the pages or the joins so that the book stands up when opened out?
Perhaps someone could post a link to a good tutorial?
Many thanks for your help, Annette
happy new year!
Hi Annette When I have made one of these I make each page first simply because it is easier to sit and work on 1 page I use pelmet vilene to stiffen pages. I just join the pages together when they are all finished. Another good reason for doing this is I can add as many pages as I want when I want (especially if I get a new Idea ) and if I mess one up I can just not add it in. Just my take on this.
you have probably finished your book by now, Annette, but I posted this a few days ago and the book dimensional delights by liz aneloski is a good one
