Letters of Joy Slinky Book

These are pictures of my first class at Letters of Joy. But I only finished it today. It uses a 4 needle method of binding and anyone who knows me would know that I am just hopeless with a thread and needle. I kept knotting my thread, putting it in the wrong holes, had to take it out again, and on and on. It was an exercise in patience, FOR SURE, to finish this book. There are over 50 pages, a lot of sewing!! And the pages were all colored using a "sink art method." And it is really tiny, measuring only 2 inches by 2 inches.

But it is so cute. It is called a slinky book because you can actually go from front to back like a slinky. The loose fitting sewing structure allows for movement. I can't wait to write in it!


  1. i absolutely love your little slinky'll have so much fun adding your gorgeous letterforms to the pages!! i wish i could have joined you for the "letters of joy" sounds like it was wonderful! xo

  2. Wonderful book Jan! I love sink art, but I am with you about binding. I usually get a blinding headache trying to keep the stitching straight and in the right order. ;)

  3. Wish I could have been at Letters of Joy too. Looks like you had a wonderful time and came home with great new creations!
