Fabric Pouches

I am so happy I ran across tutorials by Teesha Moore, on how to make fabric pouches. I have a canvas storage box filled with different sized pouches that I have prepared. As I sit to relax and watch movies, I pick up one of the pouches and start stitching and decorating. I had quite a few completed, when I realized I had enough to make a cover for a fabric journal.
There is really no need for me to start collecting any more objects, but over the past year, I have been collecting pin-back buttons and pins. Don’t ask me why, but all of a sudden I have a collection. Up until now, the pins and buttons have been tucked away in a drawer. On my trip to Seattle I found some cute additions for my collection. I thought it would be a great idea to make a fabric book to display my buttons.
One of my favorite pins: Guess What? Chicken Butt
I chose fabric pouches that fit together to make a 6″ X 8″ front and back book cover. Then, I made a fabric pouch book spine  that was the length of the covers. I made the width of the spine to fit the number of fabric signatures I made. The signatures were not all the same size, but close enough. I like the effect of the different sized signatures. I There is a mixture of hand-sewing and machine-sewing on the signatures. After completing the signatures, I sewed them down the center, onto the book spine. There are some “blank” signatures, ready to be filled with more pins and buttons.
