I cut up some felt, to create the backing for small cloth collages. I had some cute, very inexpensive notebooks, and created these little collages for the covers. (Also a Lynn Krawczyk’s idea, in the recent Quilting Arts magazine.)

I free motioned stitched, using the design on the cover of the notebooks for inspiration.
