What Is A FatBook?

I found this picture online of what a FatBook looks like. It was on Paper Junkies website.

Basically they are made like a miniature quilt or fabric postcard and you put together in book form.

 On TFPC we had a Fatbook swap. The first one was 4 x 4 inches and we had to decorate the front and back.We each were assigned a month and we were suppose to put something pertaining to the month on the back.  I will be posting the finished project when I get my book completed. We all made 12 pages identical or as close as we could so everyone would the same book.I sent out 11 pages and should get 11 pages in return.  We left a space on the left side of the page to put grommets so that we can put it together in book form. Here is a really good article I found on how to make one.

This fatbook had a lot of goodies with it. A booklet made up of things that happened to Elvis  in January and the back of it had net with tiny rhinestones in it.

 

Front page I made, Chris. Those are really green stamps.

 

This was the back of my page. I sewed all around and left one half of the right side open like a pocket. In the pocket I put a story about me, a picture, and a recipe card with a recipe on it. I was a Christmas baby so it was only fair that I had December!

 

Here was a story about me. Chris.
