Rusty but trusty

>> Wednesday, March 9, 2011

I've been on a roll making Italian longstitch books lately.  My goal for February was to focus on making these leather journals, as well as photo albums.  But once I got started with the longstitch books, I just couldn't seem to stop.  

I made some with rich brown leather (like this book), and more recently with butter yellow and bright teal leather covers, but my favorite has been this rustic orange suede.  I can't seem to get enough of the gorgeous color (especially when paired with mint green thread) or the soft texture.  And I think the journal looks especially lovely paired with all of the "rusty but trusty" items in the treasury below.

I do love your Italian Longstitch books - you make this binding very well and it always looks fabulous; I know they're good books, because I have one!
The rusty coloured one looks gorgeous in that lovely treasury.
I hope you sell them all very soon!
