Wishbone Book

Rather than create a straightforward turkey design for this week's theme, I decided to take inspiration from one of our family's turkey day traditions--the wishbone.

This part of the turkey was anticipated by my brothers and I every Thanksgiving. As kids, we would fight over who got to break the wishbone, and the possibility that our wish (for candy or toys, usually) would come true.
Using the coptic stitch, I bound this book together and sewed on a felt cover complete with a wishbone and the simple word "wish."

When you open the book, the pages lay flat, making it ideal for sketching. This would be a perfect place to write and remember your wishes and dreams.
