This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge is memories.  I have just finished making memory books for my sisters, and thought it was perfect for this theme.  In June this year, I went to QSDS and took a class with book artist Pam Sussman. We learned to make fabric books.

My sister had given me some articles of clothing that belonged to my mother and asked that I create art with it. I had not been able to decide how to make such a piece for her, but the concept of a fabric book seemed a perfect use for the material. My sister loved the idea, and I was able to make one for each of my sisters and one for my nephew using the clothes.

It was a good way to use the clothes and the memories.
