A discarded book was the inspiration for this little paper dress. I sorted through many ideas of what to use the pages for - then stumbled across this cute idea of a dress.
I have now made several, adding embroidery and/or sequins and/or ribbons. The possibilities are endless.
The picture here is one of my handmade journals. The dress is so cute on the front.
When making items from old books, I do like to use only the books that have been discarded - the ones that no one wants, and which no one wants to buy, or ones which are damaged beyond repair. And I am a big fan of recycling and upcycling. So I was pleased to be able to upcycle many of this particular book's pages into art. I still have lots of pages to use up.

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
