Working with fabric

Everyone needs a way to wind down and relax and for me, the hoarder of all things paper and stamps, I need something totally different. For some time now I have been working on a cloth book. I made it some time ago and now I am beginning to add the detail. 

This is how it started.


I added some stamped images using Stazon ink


And now I am embroidering the details using embroidery threads


I've also used fabric paint to colour in the stamps which worked surprisingly well.
This is a work in progress but I am making three tutorials so that you can make one of your own.

More soon xxx
