A sweet vintage mini concertina book

Welcome friends to my blog today!
Well you all know how much a fan I am of making books.
 This one was inspired by the wonderful Caterina Giglio.
 She has an excellent You Tube video on how to create
 one of these mini concertinas!

Go check out her video here:…/mini-fabric-concertin…


This little book requires simple sewing skills

and you can choose any theme, words, buttons, ribbons, laces, cards and findings that you so desire!



The beautiful metal heart and the holy card came
from Rhonda of A Little Bit French Shop - Thank you so much
Rhonda for these! 

She really has a beautiful collection of kits at the moment 
which would be ideal for creating one of these
little concertina books! 

I used a lovely vintage cut lace linen tray cloth
for mine which I dyed with Parisian Essence
to achieve this color but you may
also use tea, coffee or natural dyes
for your little project! 

My poem here I printed and backed with
a tea bag giving more depth of color!

Whatever theme you choose it needs to be
what is meaningful for you
it can be just a little fun piece 

where you can use up your precious little
pieces of scrap laces and doilies!
I know it will be one I will make over again for sure!
Thanks Cat for all of your wonderful inspiration!!! 

Now I'm going to link this post up to
and if you so desire
you can still link up any of your neutrals post
for another week before it becomes No. 48

Many thanks to all of my new followers and to anyone
else who loves and appreciates the items
I create! Enjoy!!!

Love and hugs,
Suzy xxx
