TAST2 Sampler

Shirley asked about my TAST2 sampler. I work on small pieces of cloth, different ones, just as I like them or have them at hand and after finishing a piece I sew them to a piece of felt, fold them like a concertina so that the pages form a book and wrap a band around it. That's it. Sometimes I do a page for one stitch, sometimes there are different stitch examples on a page. Here are my pages so far.

Shirley hat nach mein Mustertuch für TAST2 gefragt. Ich arbeite auf kleinen, unterschiedlichen Stoffstücken, gerade so wie es mir gefällt oder wie ich sie zur Hand habe. Nachdem ein Stück fertig ist, nähe ich es auf ein Filzteil, falte das Filzteil wie eine Ziehharmonika, so daß sich ein Buch ergibt und binde ein Band darum. Fertig. Manchmal mache ich eine ganze Seite zu einem Stich, manchmal umfaßt eine Seite auch mehrer Stich-Proben. Hier sind meine bisherigen Seiten.

Raphael, I had a look at how you save your stitch samples and think that is a great idea. The softness of the felt would protect the stitches. I have some that are bigger, but could use bigger pages. Perhaps if I were careful I could cut the sampler into smaller pieces. Will measure up and look at that. We live a way out of town cant wait till our next visit to get some felt.
Thanks a lot for the pictures.

Great idea for your samples. I think I should keep the instructions with the stitches too because I forget how to do some of them!

What a clever idea to make a fabric book on felt! Thanks for sharing this. Maybe I combine this with the idea I had for making a fabric book, which isn't working for me.
