Bookcovers

I have been busy using up scraps and pieces of fabric that I have created then stored in the cupboard for a later date and I am quite pleased with the results!

The fabric for the first book has been created with scraps from tassels that were too big and bits of ribbon. All brightly coloured and finished off with a silk panel and an elephant charm.

The middle book favourite, has been made from fabric I created using painted bondaweb, foiling, sweetie papers (Ferrero Rocher – only the best) sari silk scraps and organza. It is all held in place with free machine embroidery using metallic and holograpic threads.

And the third book has been made from silk scraps taken from a sample book – hence the ability to shade the colours as you go. It is finished off with an embroidery stitch and bronze medallion.
