“If you don’t have a lot of time at one stretch to work on creating, this is a good project. You can plan one page at a time, sew them later, and assemble them even later. Using 15 minutes here and there can be time well spent. None of us ever has enough time to create!”

Most of us probably don’t have as much time as we would like, probably even less to just sit and be creative. But that doesn’t mean we don’t try! From painting to stamping, to sewing and gluing, we find ways to express ourselves. And while we may try to clear up a few hours a here and there to pursue our artistic passions, Mary Walden’s project is a great way to keep our creativity going throughout our busy days.

This little book of encouragement is made out of bits and pieces of fabric, scraps of paper, and doilies and lace. It’s held together with some basic sewing techniques, and the book itself get’s assembled with binder rings. Each page can be seen as a mini projects, with all of the steps being broken down into 15 minute intervals. Challenge yourself to make your own little book of encouragements throughout a week or a month, and see what you come up with!

    I’m in love with this little book! I have collected bits and pieces like what Mary Walden has used here and only recently started to use them. This is a great jumping off point for my journey into fabric collage. I am starting with her idea and making a self portrait piece using a school portrait of myself at 5 years old…. Thank you for sharing it!
