Take a stitch Tuesday - this weeks stitch is basque stitch. I've used the stitch for couching again. The patterned fabric with the chicken was part of a digitally printed fabric sample, the full design can be seen on a t-shirt in my Zazzle store. The green fabric was hand printed. The only other additions are the charms.
My samples as a collection were getting really fat so I have made them into a book. I used a hand printed fabric for the covers and embellished with some of the stitches we have used in the Tast challenges.
I made it similar to an exposed spine book and used a spotty tape for the binding and the ends are hidden in the covers. It was a bit more complicated than a paper book - the blanket stitch on the covers was done after the binding.
I stitched on the back too, that was a mistake but I thought I would leave it in.
I think I will add a list of stitches on the inside cover although most of them are named a few are not.
