Wedding Guest Book/Album

My niece, Sarah, asked me to a guest book/album for her wedding this past April. Mom, Jackie and I went browsing through Joann’s where I found this fabric. I couldn’t resist! It was in Sarah and Taylor’s colors (gray and gold) and just really pretty. This was actually my second attempt at it. The embroidered names were too thick and wonky on the first one. It’s about 8-1/2″ x 10″. No one carries 11×17″ parchment in the stores, so I had to order it. It worked out great.

I had just started playing with kumihimo when this project came around, so I made the trims around the edge and along the pearls. It’s made from embroidery thread.

The binding is a French Stitch Binding over a hand-dyed ribbon (yea! alcohol inks). The stitching is done with embroidery thread, as well. The binding instructions I used are from an online class I took from Kim Parkinson at My Creative Classroom.
