I upcycled a used book cover and recovered it with this cool polka dot/egg shapes brown fabric. The end pages are pink with polka dot trees fabric. There are six signatures of paper with the first pages of each being a brown flowery card stock. I used an off white linen waxed thread to sew it together. My camera really sucks- sorry. Anyway, fun to make and fun to handle.

I upcycled a battered old 1960 Life World Library book about France. Five of the nine signatures of paper are hand torn pages from the book. The cover is off white flowery flannel and the end pages are brown flowery cotton fabric. Notice the Eiffel Tower on the front page. Very fun/soft to handle and lots of vintage pictures and history about France to see. :)
