Re-cycling ...

... And making book wraps for the CQ tombola at NEC this year. I've chopped up a wall hanging and used up scraps and fabric bought for projects that didn't get going which is all good - but these have been a fight all the way, rather than the fun project I'd hoped.

For the construction I followed a quick and easy tutorial by Lyric Kinkard Tutorial – Sketchbook Slipcover | Lyric Art which is simplicity in itself, once you've made the quilted outer, and that's where I struggled. And the reason seemed to be that once again I was trying to second guess what others would like, rather than making something that would please me. You think I'd have learned by now!
