My Heirloom Crochet Book

The February topic at Unruly PaperArts blogozine is Book It.  Amazing books already have been posted so far this month.  Each creative contributor has a different take on the topic.

Although I've bound books:


altered books:


and folded paper to make books:



I decided to make something totally different for my UPA contribution.

I used two heirloom crocheted hot pads from my mother's family as the covers to create a small scrapbook of heritage photos.  A monochromatic blue theme was used throughout.



This month's generous sponsor at Unruly Paper Arts is Rubber Dance Stamps.  Bibi from Rubber Dance Stamps also has a couple of articles posted this month at UPA.  I used one of her stamps on this page:


I hope you will pop over to UPA to read my article and see all the pages in detail.  You can find it HERE.

Super idea! I have tons of crocheted doilies my grandmother made...what a nice way to honor her memory and make a scrapbook of photos from days past.
