The Blue Book - covers


I've been away to Budapest for a few days and very nice it was too. The weather was great too, not like here where it is cold, wet and miserable. I took over 240 photos while I was there, I may put some of them on flickr but not on this blog as I have to change the size of them.
As you can see I have more photos of the blue book mainly of the outer cover.

The covers are made from a draylon velvet fabric and I used a thick blue cord to bind the book together. I used different fabrics for the inner pages.



Below - The inside of the cover - these are recycled wipes which have been stamped/painted/stitched. There is also a shisha mirror with embroidery around it, this is a purchased stud.

  2. Glad you enjoyed your trip Lin. Your blue book looks great, fab covers - the whole thing looks so tactile too - think I'd keep stroking it if I was flicking through x

  3. Hi Lin
    I think this fabric art book is a masterpiece and a credit to you. Love the amount of energy, hours of work, different techniques and love you have put into this.
    The covers and the binding are just perfect for the book.
    Congratulations! I know about making these and, though I don't use all those different techniques in mine, I can really appreciate it.
    Sending hugs,
    Suzy
