What is Stitchbooking?
Stitchbooking is a new craft that I hope you will love and want to explore with me. It is a mixture of scrapbooking and textile techniques and is used to make beautiful handmade photographic fabric books.
It is based on the use of Photo Transfer Paper which allows you to add digital images to fabric in a high-quality and hard wearing way. It can incorporate a huge range of textile crafts, for example: embroidery, applique, quilt making, cross stitch and silk painting.
You can make books or pages like you would in a scrapbook- to record a family holiday or a particular event like a birthday. You could treat it like a journal and create a time capsule of your life right now, or you could make an illustrated book on a particular theme.
