This project only used up maybe 1/4 yard. I love making these books. Little birds sitting on a line of stitching. I made one a few weeks ago and put it in the shop. It sold the next day. Normally that would be good, but I loved it so much I was sad to send it away. So I made some more using this pinstripe cotton I got in NY, ivory silk dupioni and some linen. Fabric purchased without a purpose over a year ago, finally put to use.
