Cross Stitched Fabric Album

I LOVE making albums out of unconventional things. This little album is just that. I had found a bag of cross-stitch fabric at a local secondhand store when I envisioned a really cool album made out of these pieces! I wanted the album to have a homespun feel. Here is what I ended up with.

I cut 4 pieces of this cross-stitch fabric and sewed two pieces together to create a pocket. These pockets serve as my front and back cover for my album. Inside each pocket I used a piece of duck cloth and wrote on it.

The inside pages are made up of chipboard, clear plastic, modge podged pieces of old book pages, and photos.
One of the most incredible aspects of the Bind-it-All is that it allows you SO much creative freedom. I love being able to mix different kinds of media to make a one-of-a-kind album. I simply used my BIA on all my pages (even the cross-stitch fabric) and bound it with owires. Once you experiement with different elements and media you will love the expression of creativity that the Bind-it-all offers to you!


Make your album yours...make it unique.....make it you! Just think outside the box...go outside your comfort zone and create! YOU can do it!
