Pocket Book





Well, I finally got off my behind and made this Pocket Book, which was a Joggles online class by Janet Clark. The front cover is painted nappy liners, organza and chiffon with free motion embroidery - then zapped with the heat gun. I lined the cover with the paper towells that I had underneath the nappy liners when I painted them - which turned out this wonderful magenta with a mottled deep blue colour. The pockets inside are made from thick fusible pellon. The inside of the pellon is lined with coloured paper towell and the outside is painted vliesofix with snippets of fabric, covered with netting - which is then ironed and fused down. I'm really happy with how the book turned out - now just need to decide what treasures I'll store in the pockets.

I love your free motion stitching on the cover and the hand made beads. What is vliesofix? Never heard of it before.

This is fabulous Dianne. You deserve to be well pleased with it. The colours are wonderful and I love the way you have put it all together. And I agree with Jacqueline, you choose a good surface to photograph it on - works very well.

I'm surfing at the moment Di, just looking, no time for commenting, but WOW! I had to stop and say 'just wonderful. Love the textures, and so pretty.' Love your postcards too (while I'm stopped) are you into this gorgeous rich 'pink' colour, or does it just turn out that way? Val
