Starting a Fatbook!

I came across the fiber fatbook craftalong on craftster today led by the talented morglanc, and totally fell in love with idea. Basically, you create a book page-by-page out of various fiber things. It's like an art journal, but super fat and made from softer things instead of papery things.

I'm getting started right away, because there are just so many awesome possibilities. Here's my first page. They are supposed to be 4''x4'', but that seemed too little for me. Mine will be 5''x5''...

Imagine all the cool things I can use... fabric scraps, yarns, embroidery, crocheted stuff, felt, weaving... Endless. This is going to be super fun! I love being able to use all my little scrappy stuff and this is the perfect way to do it!

I really like the idea of this! I might have to give it a shot. Also, I have a ton of small precut squares I thrifted a long time ago that would be perfect for this project. (I have soooo many, lemme know if you want some for your book I don't mind sharing the wealth!)

Mafiosa! You should TOTALLY join in! You will seriously come up with such awesome pages.... Morglanc & I thought doing a little fatbook-related swap, either pages or supplies, would be awesome. Do it! Join us!!!
