Remember this little notebook cover that featured in this post here?
I designed it as a sample for my Tuesday embroidery class. The ladies were given the challenge to design their own project to showcase the technique and I was looking forward to seeing what they would come up with. And what did they come up with? Notebook covers!
But still each one is unique and rather lovely. I especially like the embroidered bee and beaded button on Di's beautiful notebook.
Jean's fun book is covered with humorous text.
Linda is not only new to the class but also new to machine embroidery and despite working without an embroidery foot for the first two weeks, has produced this amazing example above.
This is Jan's diary cover...
and the front and back of her second example. Such delicate imagery.
Linda also made a second example.
And while the class have been working on their projects I have used the technique to make a cushion cover...
a rather premature Valentine! Stewart wanted to know who I was giving it to but I told him I hadn't decided yet! I am toying with making them to order with customised messages though... what do you think? Good idea?
The back is a plain envelope...
But my favourite bits are the buttons.
Just 2 cm diameter.
Wonder what I can make next?
