Lately, there has been an interest in making book covers so below are a few examples of ones that have been produced by Cuttine Edge members.
Chris made this one for a Spanish visitor – and she was thilled with it.
Corinne has created an awesome doggy one.
And also made these two lovely covers from offcuts of fabric that she created at a recent Virginia Hole workshop.
Keris has made this beautiful cover for a journal that she intends to keep whilst on holiday in India.
And this one is for a journal that she will write when on holiday in Vietnam
Keris also showed us a cover that a friend from North Wales had made for her – a lovely sea scape
Hilary has shared pictures of book covers that she has made in the recent past.
Koh i Norr paints have been used for this design.
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!
Isobelle has also joined in and made a wonderful cover with a piece of work that she created at a recent Angie Hughes workshop.
And more recently she has machine embroidered a cover for a ring binder.
These are a some of the ones that Monica has made.
This one is currently travelling the world. Monica gave it to her daughter when she recenlty met her in India.
Monica made this one to use for her recent travls to Goa.
This elephant cover holds Monica’s journal of her travels to Kerala in 2014.
And this one is a birthday present for an Alice in Wonderland fan. It is decorated with a clock and hand of cards charm.
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
Monica created this one for her daughter who has been on her travels since December 2014 and is due home at the end of July 2015.
