back to the books and bojagi

October 21, 2011

I’m experimenting with making fabric pages.

 the background fabric is hand-woven linen, arashi shibori dyed with kakishibu. The insert is one of my “log cabin” patches stitched from tiny scraps.

  I’ve used fusible interfacing to stabilize the light weight fabric and finished the inside with silk, shibori dyed with lichen.. then stitched in a smaller page of hand-woven linen and shifu.

think I’ll try a blanket stitch around the edge.

I started this piece first to use as a hard cover but got in a bit of a muddle so left it to simmer and moved on to the page above.

this is the latest bojaji, think it will get a bit more stitching. There is some stamping, some eco dyeing, natural dyes and some hand-woven scraps.  I managed to leave some of the original hemstitching on the napkin pieces.

 I’m having fun!
