Beaded Fabric Sketch Book





When I bought my Bind it All machine there was some 6x6" hardboard covers enclosed with it,I dont usually work this big,must'nt waste them so thought I would make a Sketch Book.

The cover is supposed to be a garden scene,I,m trying all ways to do landscape or garden scenes in fabric......oh yes talking about that,I digress,In one of my groups this link was given,a new TV programe on the country channel called Talking Threads
here

I watched last week,I must tell you this lady does amazing work,I have ordered her book,she is the master of Landscapes onto Fabric
here

Getting back to my book,I first started machine sewing my scrim and muslin material onto felt,then painted with Luminere paints before handsewing the beads etc on.The little squares are fabric paper,I forgot I should have put through the bind it All before sewing beads on lol,so hence the holes and ribbons instead ! I find there is always a way to save a project,another way round it,thank god......after all that work haha.
I am quite pleased with the outcome but have lots to learn,and really enjoying playing around with all this new material.
