Raw edge fabric journal pages

Here are a couple of pages for my raw-edge fabric journal. This is a work in progress, and am still adding to some of the pages, twelve in total.

This has a painted muslin background, with dyed laces, organza, stencils, and two little squares of jumbles, heart of grungeboard, etc. I am making these little embellies, inspired by the book Fabric Art Collage, by Rebekah Meier. I really like this book...lots of techniques.

This patchy page features a Time to Stamp image of a little girl, on fabric, medallions made with air dry clay, more organza and used dryer sheets.

Placemat Bag

This is from an article in the Threads Aug/Sept 2005 issue. I have been meaning to make this bag for such a long time, and yesterday, a lovely snowy day, I picked up this mag and went to town.
It is made with a purchased placemat; this one has velvet leaves on the back. The button closure is a very old one from my stash - my MIL's gifts to me!
The bag has two pockets, a third side pocket, and a place for my pen in the top flap, sideways.
