pocket swap 2

i so enjoyed making the first pocket that i finished the 2nd one on the same day

this time i used coloured silks, including pieces from an upcyled silk shirt and a hand dyed scarf

i started by machine stitching the background pieces onto cotton wadding, and then added some trimmed and dyed upcycled tape lace

after collaging some strips on top, i found some upcycled buttons to accentuate them

then i hand embroidered and hand quilted through the layers with perle cotton

to finish, i used the slub side of a grey silk remnant for lining, and sewed around the edges 3 times with a machine zig zag stitch in grey thread

will probably use press studs as closures …

[various found silk fabrics, found buttons, cotton wadding, machine stitching, hand embrooidery, hand quilting]

    • Thank you! I just love hand stitching – pocket one was done entirely by hand, but pocket 2 had some initial machine sewing. After that, I just let myself go with lovely threads and embroidery stitches! =D
