The Graphic Fairy. I modified it a while back and added my own digital love birds. For this card, the combined images were printed on white cardstock and watercoloured. I added some Vintage Linen distress ink to the frame before I stitched it to the vintage image. I embellished the laser printed greeting with watercolour, punched a hole on one end and flagged the other. I tied a string into the hole and wrapped the long end around this focal element several times and tied the ends near the tag. I attached the whole element to my blue green card front using double sided tape. The greeting needed a bit of something so I added a little heart rhinestone which I coloured with a sharpie to be a coordinating colour.

Here are the back and front of the finished fabric journal. I love the amount of texture it has and how colourful it is!!
Here are some close ups of my embellishments - charms and beads!!
Here are photos of the inside and back covers!!
I am happy with how it worked out. I have enough little quilts made to make another one. I did find someone on line that had made cuffs from some of hers so I may give that a try. There are certainly lots of people making bags from them as well so I will consider that some time in the future!!
Without even trying hard I have collected a bit of a fabric stash - just little pieces that are left over from sewing projects, scraps from other quilters in the family and a few quilt scrap bags from thrift/fabric stores.
I am certainly enjoying the creative possibilities of these little hand stitched quilts and look forward to doing even more creative projects with them.
