I loved Kelli Nina Perkins tutorial on how to make a stitched pagelet, so I'm giving it a try. Here's the first step. I used a page from a sort of cookbook--it's a year long record of every menu the Hotel St. Francis chef, Victor Hirtzler created. The book was published in 1948, and is notable to me, because my father was a chef at the same hotel, located in San Francisco. So of course, I had to draw a picture of food! Grabbed a bottle of olive oil, and a garlic and red pepper from the fridge and did a quick straight to pen drawing. I'll post the finished piece next week. Why don't you try making one and post it on your blog? just for fun? let me know.
