Textile Trinket Box and Mini Book

I made a panel of fabric a while back thinking I'd make it into one notebook cover but instead I have made it into this little box and mini book! So cute I can hardly bear to part with it.

 

To make this box and book I have fused and stitched lots of sheer and shimmering fabrics and fibres onto a background of dyed fleece.

Beautiful shades of turquoise, purple and pink swirl with texture. Machine embroidery and little beaded areas add extra interest.

 

Box measures 8x8cm by 5x8cm and is lined with recycled shirt cotton. The base is lined with genuine Harris Tweed in a beautiful shade of pink. Box closes with a wrapped wool cord around a pearly turquoise vintage button.

 

Mini Book measures 7x7cm and contains 24 pages of recycled paper in a hammered effect off white colour. Perfect for keeping little quotes and notations in. The book only takes up half the depth of the box so there is room for other treasures too.

Book closes with a wrapped wool cord with silver tone bead ends.
