Creating a simple pocket,
and hand-work on the back of a page.
This is the inside cover of my journal.
will have one side which is machine sewn
and the reverse side will be hand sewn.
Running both sides of your page through the sewing machine
will more than likely ruin your first side,
you will see stitches where you would rather not.
- choose a piece of lace or doily
which will fit your page well-
- using a simple running stitch,
sew around three sides of your lace,
being careful to catch the fabric layer with your needle,
but not the laces and elements on the front side of your page -
- leave the top open,
and you have a pocket -
- place trims or laces on your page
and cut to size -
- use pearls or beads to secure the trim -
Here I have used a tattered flower trim
and vintage pearl beads.
- embellish with a lovely flower,
and tuck a sweet treasure inside the pocket -
I will share a few more tips for
building and embellishing pages.
Please leave questions as comments,
and I will be sure to post a response.
enJOY Your Blessings,
