Making Sketchbooks

Well the school summer holidays are upon us.. so it was time to get the grandchildren into the studio to make some sketchbooks/journals to record this annual event. Grandson made a "disappearing nine patch block" ( see here for a great tutorial) for the front cover of his sketchbook, using my very sharp flower pins and my ancient Willcox and Gibbs chain stitch machine. We were very impressed by the finished result.

Youngest grandchild went for the collage option.. lots of glue and double sided tape and cutting out.

Older sister decided to go for the same option when she discovered a very feminine flowery paper. did I remember to take a photo ?
? No!!!
