|I see you--but what is it?|
I have been wanting to make a Monster Book for quite a while. But in order to work out the logistics, I had to practice on working with fur again. I tried in 2008 and described the process here.
Once I understood how to work with the fur, I needed to review how to sew the Coptic Stitch binding technique. In 2009, I shared the technique here and here. Once I reviewed the sewing pattern, I was ready to go with my Abominable Snowman Book (in homage to the Christmas cartoon, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer).
Here is the opened book on it's side

front and back covers
Here is my favorite view of the book: Opened Up and resting on it's edge.
Overall, I am very happy with the way that it turned out. I have some minor tweeking to do but I will definitely have these for sale for the holidays and on my Etsy shop.
