Fiber Fatbook

The term fatbook originated at ArtFest, an annual art gathering in Washington state organized by Teesha Moore. Michelle Geller has some wonderful fatbooks on her blog Hold Dear. There are also some great fatbooks in Collaborative Art Journals and Shared Visions in Mixed Media by L. K. Ludwig, a treasure trove of inspiration that I return to again and again. The fatbook is made up of 4″x4″ embellished fiber pages swapped by participants in advance and bound into a book for distribution on arrival at the event. It is a monumental effort and the results are spectacular.

Since I am into art journaling, book arts, and quilting, making a fiber fatbook was a natural choice for me. I chose a 6″x6″ page format, some Hobbs Thermore batting that was on hand, and a variety of my favorite designer and specialty fabrics from stash. Here are some of the pages assembled recently and the next step would be to add some beading and more embellishment. Making fatbook pages is a great way to open up to new creative possibilities and try new things.
