Memory Book

I have just finished this fabric book this week. Each page is actually a pocket for keeping special things in so I call it my memory book.

It is made from several different interfacings - one very heavy for the in between pages and lightweight shapewell for the actual pocket pages. I hand dyed these first by spraying with different coloured dyes that I then allowed to mix on the interfacing. I then did some machine embroidery finally embellished this with a few sequins and many, many french or colonial knots in a variety of different coloured, types and thickness of threads.

The cover is made with silk paper that I made (although I bought it already dyed) and embellished mostly with beads and a tissue paper motif that I also made.

Hope you like it
