MARIE ANTOINETTE - FABRIC BOOK

I'm becoming a little obsessed and so I decided to make myself a Marie Antoinette Fabric Book.
It will be completely hand sewn, as I feel in that way i will become part of the book itself.

Here is the first page

Approx Size
8" x 5.5"
(20cm x 13 cm)

It has to be attached to page 2 and padding inserted and an edging sewn on.

I have started on page 2 but am awaiting some lovely crystal beads to arrive, before i can do anymore work to it.

The two beautiful blue flowers were kindly given to me by Constanza. (See link to the right)

Both images were printed onto fabric using the Freezer Paper Fabric Printing tutorial that is in my Tutorials to the right.

My aim is to make each page different to the rest, using different techniques and fabrics. But all will have the plain white cotton background.

JUST HOPE THE BEADS TURN UP QUICK. I'm a very impatient person, as soon as i win something on ebay I WANT IT NOW. LOL.
