1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embellished book cover on: July 12, 2008 10:19:24 PM
It is a bit difficult to decide what catergory my work should go in. Technically, it's crazy quilting, I would call it fibre art, but it seemed to best fit here...

This is a book sleeve I made to cover a memory book for my step daughters 21st

 Having not posted on craftster for a really long time, I feel the need to apologise for breaking  rules...because I just read them.
Although I am not advertising stuff to sell, because I do not have a place to sell, was just letting you know that they SOLD, which is a big 'YAY' when you hope to make some money from your passion.
 *SORRY* miss moderator Cry

ScissorSister7, the ribbon at the top is a trim....a REALLY BIG TRIM Shocked

I have another bag the same as this in pinks and greens with this trim in pink/maroon. I just have to construct the bag, then I'll post a pic.

lol sweet_avalanche. I'm so NOT adventurous I won't even move out of my suburb, and it is one of the worst in New Zealand.
The South Island is beautiful, my partner and I toured it a few years ago, 7 to be exact, just before kids!

lafemmefatale, I have tried markets, but they don't want to pay what I'm asking. This last lot, a wonderful lady who owns a clothing store bought the whole lot, for my asking price and said she could easily sell them for 100% mark up. She may get the profit, but it is nice that someone has that confidence in my work
I'm thinking about etsy, but I just don't know.
sweet_avalanche, if you click on my flickr link and go back a few pages, you will find detail shots of everything.

That's my favourite colour too, Hulla. I would use it for all my work if I thought the rest of the world would love it as much as I do, and now, maybe you!!
The fabrics are from a graduated dyed pack that I get from my fantastic dying lady. I really prefer a monotone palette to work on. Although I love the look of traditional victorian Crazy quilts, I just can't get my head around all that colour together Undecided
I have made one bag with *lots* of colour. I hate it, but others love it. Each to there own.

Thank you all for the great comments.  Kiss
Sarahpanda, the 'appliques' are actually silk ribbon embroidery, all hand done.
Eliea, the embriodery is all hand done. I machine piece the blocks ( I do that by hand often too) and  construct the bag on the machine, but everything else is hand work.

More of my 8" totes. These are toned down crazy quilting for those who do not appreciate the art of embellishment. They also require a whole lot less time, which is great when it comes to selling them.
All of these are sold. YAY!!!

This bag is made with an 8" crazy quilted block.

Sorry, bit short of words tonight, but you get the picture. You ask and I'll answer Wink
