Finished 100 Day Project!

Over head view of a textile book. The cover of the book is made of vertical strips of fabric in purple, pink and yellow colours. A narrow  lime green ribbon is wrapped around the book.

Hello! This is my finished 100 Day Project! I love it and I am so proud of it. It was a lot of work but so worth it and it has already inspired some new projects I want to do at some point. :-)

If you would like to make a project like this, you can get access to my 24 prompts which also includes a long video tutorial showing how to put the book together. Check it out here.

Below are the pages I haven’t shared yet.

Buuuut, why not take a look at this video I made with a tour of the finished book? :-D

Overhead view of a wooden embroidery hoop with lime green fabric. On the fabric is embroidered a mandala inspired design in blue and green colours.

I loved making this mandala! You can make it too, check out the Cool Mandala pattern! :-)

Overhead view of a square of fabric printed with a tiny blue leaf design. 16 yellow or orange fabric circles are appliquéd on the fabric in a 4 by 4 grid. The circles are decorated with various stitches and beads.

This page didn’t turn out how I imagined it would and to be honest I’m sure I like it very much. Maybe it’s too busy… or something. I don’t know…

Overhead view of a small wonky, raw edge patchwork made of several different fabrics in purple colours. The patchwork is quilted with cross shaped stitches and decorated with three buttons.

Now this page I do like! Very much! The texture is lovely and, to my surprise, I really love all the purple colours. Purple is not one of my go-to colours and I wanted to push myself a bit outside my comfort zone. :-)

And I love the wooden buttons in particular. They are made of juniper wood and they came from my late grandmother’s stash. They are so pretty.

Close overhead view of a slow stitching piece with many different scraps of fabric, buttons, and embroidery on a pink fabric background.

More slow stitching! So fun! Can you spot the slightly unusual item I used on this page? :-)

Close overhead view of a square of fabric showing a partial print of a large flower. On the fabric is a quote stitched in cross stitches: Labels are for food, canned food. Michael Stipe.

Cross stitch writing on a very big vintage floral print. This is the last page in the book.

The quote is by Michael Stipe. Although I only stitched part of it. Here it is in its entirety:

I’ve always felt that sexuality is a really slippery thing. In this day and age, it tends to get categorized and labelled, and I think labels are for food. Canned food.
