convert a book into a clock
My parents gave me this book in 1999 because I write poetry. But...I can't write in metrical rhymed verse to save my life. When I decided to do this project this seemed like the perfect book. It is about me and my interests, it is inscribed to me (in the back and upside down) and it has a good degree of aging.
After I made the hole in the cover for the clock face, I saved the cover fabric to use in the clock face. I am still trying to decide if I like the clock face or if I want to change it. I left the edges of the fabric frayed because I think I like it. (Do you sense indecisiveness by any chance?) It doesn't matter this is an easy project and easily changed.
I will post a tutorial at Suite101 later today.
