On Saturday, since I didn’t want to turn on the quilting machine, I started digging around for something to do. I’ve let myself get a little off track with my daily art project idea — I’ve still been doing things, but haven’t gotten away from creating something that was a completely finished project each day. I grabbed the Winter 2006 issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and was reminded how much I liked the tiny purse shaped books that were on the front cover. So I made a couple.
These 3 are based on the patterns in the magazine.
The artist is Debbie Crane. She challenged herself to make a miniature purse book every single day in 2004.
Aren’t they cute? Hers are even cuter.
I’ve experimented a little bit, too, with some different shapes:
And they are just so dang cute, I can’t help myself!
(I’m so excited to be able to post pictures again, I couldn’t help myself with all of these! They are all clickable, so you can view them larger if you choose!)
