E-reader cover, version 2

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I found the first one very enjoyable to work on and now have so many ideas for these covers that I'll have to make dozens! Instead of embroidery for the embellishment I might make my own fabric from yarn, thread and fabric scraps next time.

What you will need

  • Silk brocade for the main fabric and silk dupioni for the lining.

Q&A with Likelylass

Cfc asked:
LOVE the one with the book embroidery
Likelylass answered:
Thanks. It's the perfect design for these covers!
valkstaff asked:
can I ask where you got the book embroidery design from please the whole effect is gorgeous
Likelylass answered:
Naturally, I hadn't kept a note of the source ;-) but I've tracked it down at Embroidery Library. It's a very dense design so if you have editing software I recommend reducing the stitch count. http://www.emblibrary.com/EL/Products.aspx?Catalog=Emblibrary&ProductID=E6476
