hidden treasures – cover begun

in my last post i mentioned that i had completed all 7 pockets for my cloth book

yesterday i ‘collaged’ some wadding with pieces of my own plant dyed and rusted fabrics (silk, cotton, satin, lace)

i machine stitched through all the layers with gold metallic thread

this morning i began the handstitching, adding upcycled buttons as embellishment

i’ve tried to continue the style i developed when making the pockets

more soon!
