My Booshcrafts for this month’s challenge, ‘Boosh Baddies’. A series of three handmade blank notebooks inspired by Nanatoo, the Hitcher  and Old Gregg.
Nanatoo’s ‘Evil Cakes’ book is pierced by a knitting needle and decorated with an assortment of cakes and bits of recipe. The Hitcher has turned a green ‘dream diary’ into a ‘Peppermint Nightmare’. And Old Gregg has made an album for his forthcoming wedding photos, decorated with seaweed and a shoe…
I had such fun. I am rubbish at bookbinding but I find it very therapeutic. There may be more in this series, e.g. Sand’s Book of DIY Tips or Eleanor’s address book or Bainbridge’s Notes on Moustache Care… but as usual I ran out of time to make all the ideas I had!
