new pockets – 4 down, 3 to go

here are all of the finished pockets so far (the latest, pocket no. 4, is shown at bottom right of photo)

as mentioned in my previous post, I added embroidery, quilting and buttons (and a key)

after coming home from spending time with family in launceston yesterday, I sat up late preparing the last 3 backgrounds

everything is stitched down, ready for hand embellishment today and tomorrow

starting to think about the cover now …

[plant dyed and rusted silk, cotton, nylon and lace; cotton wadding; buttons; machine and hand stitching; linen lining; press studs; ribbon; keys]

  1. These are just beautiful. I love the colour palette used with the rust dyed pieces – and the embellishments are wonderful! I especially love the keys as closures – they seem very fitting. Gorgeous work – so glad you visited my blog so that I could discover yours!


    • I really appreciate your visit and encouraging comment – thank you! I have a thing about keys – I even buy them online … And i love your cutting/sticking/drawing art, so I’ll be back to your blog to see what you do next! =D
