Pocket Dreams Book.

I've just finished a second book in lovely soft lavender colours.
It's called 'Pocket Dreams' and I am really pleased with the way it's turned out.
I started by embellishing merino wool tops and my hand dyed silk ribbons on to a piece of felted blanket.
I used free machine embroidery over the top.

                                 I wanted the ends of the ribbons to tie along the spine.

The pages were a set of recycled linen placemats that were just the right colour, a soft shade of gray.
                                   The fringes made a pretty edge to the bottom of the page.                                    There are little pockets to keep your treasures and quotes to
                                    inspire you.
                                      I love to add lots of embellishments and beautiful lace.
                     I hope you like my latest book. It will be listed in my Etsy shop today.
                                                        XOX Angela.
