Fabric and Bead Book
This ones for my Flickr Swap group Gas Mamma..here
I have my new sewing machine now,its been years since I have done any sewing,thought this would be good practice !
First off I dyed some cotton muslin and lace,as the challenge is to alter beermats using texture and some stamping to make a book,only a couple of pages..........
I machined the fabric to felt so its padded,makes it easy to sew beads on by hand,materials I have used on the cover are...
Beads, collaged lady onto an arch which i covered with a Brusho painted baby wipe.
Inside page is a Fabric image transfer,stamped butterfly beaded in center,on the back i have made a little flower posy with buttons and a bow.
next page dyed lace sewn on with beads,back of that which is the back cover, a fabric heart,really enjoyed creating this little book,as it took my mind off Saffie my cat whos now in the Vets on a drip,she ate some leaves off my Peace Lily plant,last Friday,I googled it as she was really sick,all of the lily family plants are poison to cats,OMG rushed her straight to Vets,they said she should be ok but have to flush her out,her liver enzines are up,so they need to watch her for another 48hrs to make sure the pills are working to bring her liver back to normal.
I am really missing her !!
