Felted Book

I do like doing the felting. This is one of the books with a felted cover. I baste it first with the hand needles then secure it with the embellisher. After blocking it with the steam iron, I machine quilt it with metallic thread. This view is the back.

Inside has three signatures each with a painted cover sheet. It's a good way to use up my painted papers, so I can make more.

Here's the front with a ribbon and button closure.

I love your felted book and it reminds me that I have not pulled out my embellisher in a very long time! which remains the problem, finding the time! sigh!
