Project Updates

I showed a piece of green plaid-inspired felt a few weeks ago. I made it to use for a notebook cover with front flap and incorporated cord/tie. I finished that a couple of days ago. This is how it looks on the book with the cord wrapped around:

This is what it looks like on the inside without the book in:

I promised photos of the finished purses, and surprisingly, I have them! This is the bluey/purpley ones, and I also made a small simple case with a green plaid offcut:

And here are the finished pink purses:

I liked the green felt with Bluefaced Leicester locks so much I made a blue one:

I used more embelleishments on this one though: silk carrier rods, silk paper, viscose paper, cotton gauze, unravelled novelty yarns.

The shiny white patch at the top is viscose paper, the blue rectangle in the bottom right is silk paper:

A BFL lock:

I feel like I could sleep for a month now, and if I never have to do blanket stitch again this year, I won’t mind!

Notebook Covers

Sorry for the short blog post, I’m not very well, so it’s mostly photos. I tried so many times to get photos of the felt I made for these, but it was either too dark and they didn’t come out, or they were weirdly orangey. This is a cover I made for an A6 address book, I used a gardening notebook I made for my girlfriend years ago as inspiration. This is the front:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a cover for an A6 address book too, I used some stripey tops I got from wollknoll and some rainbow trilobal nylon:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is a bigger one, a cover for an A5 diary or notebook made with lots of different silk pieces. I can’t decide which side I like best, so this is side one:
