What's Up Wednesday January 7th



Welcome to What's Up Wednesday! Well here it is. The cover of my textile art Bunny Book. I just adore pink and brown together an thought it would be a good combination for my book. I quilted this fabulous bunny toile fabric in a cross hatch pattern. I used a piece of vintage lace that came off an old pillow case. I sewed vintage buttons on the front and pink glass beads (love those!). Then I added a little velvet ribbon. The B was transferred onto silk with my printer. I used my computer to play around with the colors until they were the muted colors that I love so much. Finally, the clasp is actually my great grandma's pearl clip earring that I thought would be the perfect finishing touch to keep the book closed.
What do you think? I love it and am so happy with my first project of the new year.
Check back with me for Show and Tell Sunday and I'll show you the pages.
bunny kisses,
shell
