Hilary made this wonderful book cover from a cardigan that her friend Lesley shrank in the wash – not sure whether Lesley is lamenting the loss of her cardigan but this must be some compensation at least!

Monica created this cover following an Angie Hughes workshop that she recently attended. It has been created by applying foils to felt. Organza has been overlaid and free machine embroidery has been used to decorate it.

The background for the ones below has been created using the loose fabric collage technique. On the first one ‘Triangle’ shaped trees and star sequins have been added before covering the piece with a pale coloured organza. It is finished off with free machine embroidery and by hand sewing beads on to the fabric. The second one has been created by making a fabric landscape. It is then embellished with foils, sequins, beads and free machine embroidery
