Pinwheel Photo Album

1 Apr 2013

Àlbum de fotos amb molinet a la portada

 

Yes, Edicions Cotton Flower is pretty much alive, just maybe hibernating after the agenda hangover. This is our last creation: a photo album (blank) with a 3-D fabric pinwheel on the cover! I’m especially happy with the colour combination. And see, I can go beyond blue and brown!

I sewed the cover with different fabric scraps, the pages are Canson 180 g/m2 cardstock (from the shop) and the album is held together with black linen thread using a binding called coptic, you can recognise it because the spine remains uncovered and the stitches form chains along it.

This kind of binding is very appropriate for albums and scrapbooks because they can be filled with pictures, papers, and such, without the book bulging too much like with most bindings. This is the first time we’ve try this bookbinding technique, and even though it is not perfect, we are quite happy with it and will attempt it again!

The pinwheel on the cover is a quilting block I adapted (the original didn’t have as many colors, but it had a much better finish!).

  1. Ei, ja tenia ganes de veure aquest àlbum! I aviam si feu més coses, que teniu la producció una mica parada, eh? (I he mirat l’original del molinet i què vols, m’agrada més el teu.)

  2. Tens raó que ens hem de posar les piles! A veure si el sol ens dóna energia per fer-ho :)
    I el molinet, a mi també m’agrada més el meu, però pel que fa als acabats, com t’ho diria… Clar que el fet de barrejar teles diferents i fer-ho a corre-cuita tampoc hi va ajudar!

  3. Es interessant que combinis (Z) dos coses que t’agraden en una: la costura i l’encuadernacio (que en si ja es cosida habitualment). Felicitats a l’equip per aquest molinet, espero que hi poseu fotos ben xules.

    • Sí! M’agrada perquè normalment hi ha manualitats més decoratives que potser no produeixen coses gaire útils, però si ho combines amb objectes més pràctics com llibres o llibretes, queda una cosa bastant guai! :^) iupi
