THE BLOG OF Lilla LeVine: Scrumptiously made, French style fabric journals, bags, dolls,

I have just found an extraordinary blog with a French twist to it.  Lilla LeVine was just recently published in the Winter 2012 issue of Sew Somerset with her 'Bags from the Markets of France' highlighted on four pages.  But what I am so very thrilled about is...she has a you tube tutorial video which shows how she makes her fabric phamphlet books. The tutorial video is listed under: toile.fabric book and can be found on a you tube search.  There are three videos the first being: toile.fabric book; the second is: part two of my phamphlet book; and the third video is: Final sewing of phamplet book made of fabric.  And Lilla's blog is: justlilla.blogspot.com which I have put a link on my sidebar for convenience in locating.  Lilla also has an Etsy shop where she has another book tutorial you may purchase from her.
If you love Suzi Quaffle's fabulous fabric creations, you will adore Lilla's creations too!
ENJOY!!!

Hi Teresa!
Thanks so much for visiting me at Clear Crick Cottage, and for your kind suggestions for helping to get my blog to function properly! I tried to work some of the changes you requested, and noticed that I was finally ABLE to access the functions I needed to in order to make changes finally. I transferred my profile to Google, and I think this might also help, I hope!
I'll come back and visit again soon- Love your blog!
xoxo

Dear Teresa, I agree with everything you said, wise friend.
Indeed life is not black and white...some have been raised in frightening environments, and fear is all they know, for I believe many negative behaviors come from fear.
Blessings to you...may we all live in love!

Oh I love fabricc journals. I had seen a vintage one from France once and decided I wanted to make one! One day I will!

Oh Teresa, it sure was good to see your comment this morning. A visit from you is always a joy. Yes, God is certainly patient with His children to wait for them to silence themselves. I sure wish I could be as patient; maybe I would have remained a teacher!!!!

Thank you for your kind words my dear friend. May God give you a wonderful surprise in your soul today, as He did for me yesterday. LOVE! Anita

Hello from Texas! Love your blogs and all the beautiful ideas you give me. Am looking for your book Ribbon works: Special Edition. I teach embroidery, loom knitting, and other fabric crafts at our local library every Sunday. Awaiting patiently for the book store where I may buy this great book to teach fellow embroideries the good stuff. Pat
