Make book wrap with Decovil 1 Light

Make book wrap with Decovil 1 Light

Kim Thittichai is a British textile artist who specialises in surface design. In this video, you will learn how to make your own book wrap. Using a manmade fabric called Decovil 1 Light, you will be able to iron on torn newspapers to create a new surface which you can then embellish with glitter and foils. As a finishing touch, you can then use Colouricious wooden printing blocks to print your own design. Adding some of your own hand or machine stitching will pull your textile project together.

Here are some examples of the book wrap that Kim has made using the Decovil 1 Light

Bead Textile Art – Embroidery – Sewing Projects

Eliza McClelland is a textile artist who loves to teach bead textile art and embroidery. Her hand bead embroidery designs based on cross stitch designs are quick and easy to learn. These photos show you beadwork on canvas and the stunning pieces you can create using your own scrap fabric. Using your canvas, you can use beadwork for clothes and motifs on canvas for jeans using your old broken necklaces, earrings or old jewellery. The cross stitching techniques are free and easy too for beadwork beginners who if inspired will learn how about texture in beadwork and the shades of colour Eliza McClelland uses in her work. She has been inspired in her work by designs such as stained glass windows and you can build on this inspiration too for your textile art and beading projects.
You can catch up with her at many of the craft shows in the UK where she sells cross stitch bead kits
