Book of the sea 2014

My main project for 2014 is to make a fabric book of the sea. I have started off by using two pieces that I had made previously. One was a stitched seahorse that I made on an on-line course called Sumptuous surfaces. The second was a felted and  fabric postcard that I have stitched onto the backing fabric for the book, and carried the theme onto that. The third was from scratch and is mainly felted wool and silk. I have hand sewn lots of french knots, and sparkly thread on to the sea and wave edge. The pebbles at the bottom are balls of silk, sewn down with French knots. The sand is calico, cut and left raw edged.

Your book is going to be beautiful if these three pages are anything to go by. They are each individual but just as lovely as each other. I'm waiting for inspiration to arrive!
