Back at it
I finally made some time to finish another couple pages…felt good to make some progress! I am back at school starting tomorrow, so I know I’m going to have to schedule in time to work on more pages in the next few months to get this finished. I hope I can keep it up!
I finished the rest of the page that goes with the letters I did first. It was pretty easy, just sewing velcro onto one of my background pages.
I wanted to have enough lines so several words can be ‘written’ at the same time. I do still need to make a storage page for all the letters, but that will have to be another day!
Velcro in use!
The second page I finished today I started a few days ago. This page uses three types of closures: two buckles (different kinds) and D-rings, like on a belt. I know this is pretty advanced for WAB at the moment, but many examples I looked up before starting this process commented that the buckles page was a favorite. I started by cutting the ribbon and holding the edges up to a lighter to melt the ends to keep them from fraying. I should have waited to do this until I started sewing, because I ended up doing most edges twice. I cut the ribbons long so I had some to play with as I decided where to place them on the page. Ah, well. They are all on!
I used my sewing machine on all but one spot. The top buckle was too thick to put down the foot on my sewing machine so I did that side by hand. Very simple page!
So, four down, 17 to go! Wow! :)
