august/05 - virgin mary book cover

not my style, and not my best work, but oh well, i'm still pretty happy with it. the person i'm sending it to crochets a lot, and needed a way to organize her patterns better.

i found this picture of the virgin mary knitting (i couldn't find one of her crocheting).

so i put it onto a book cover for her, along with a crocheted doily (from the thrift store) that i stitched on. i don't like how you can see the stitching in some parts, but the doily was in varigated cotton, so it's not like i could pick a matching thread! i really like how the spine looks though.

and this is the inside of the book. it's 40 clear pockets. they're perfect for slipping free patterns into, or patterns printed off the internet. i love these books, i have one full of purse and applique patterns that i've made up myself so that i don't lose them, and 6 or 7 full of zines to keep them organized. i need to get at least one more for patterns.

and it ties shut so that it stays together even once she's filled it with patterns.
