My sewing room is in a state of flux so when I came across a UFO that was about to finally go in the bin I decided to make something of it. This piece is a left over from the days when I still thought that I could fulfil my dream to create pieces using fabric collage, embroidery etc. (Now older and wiser I have come to accept that this kind of technique just isn't me, no matter how much I try!)
Cut to an approximate size I could cope with the machine embroidery and a bit of couching to give the piece a bit more of a finish:
My apologies for the quality of the photo, we have been having some sun and I've forgotten to make adjustments for it! With a bit of fudging to achieve a flap for the book that still allowed the best of the fabric to cover the front my first book cover is done, I suspect it won't be the last!
