Probably The Best Book Wrap In The World!

I spent a thoroughly lovely weekend with friends from Birmingham Embroiderers’ Guild at Westhope Craft College, on a ‘Mad About Metals’ weekend, stitching with lots of recycled metals.

One of the two items I finished over the weekend is this book wrap:

Book Wrap

It is made from an embossed sheet of metal from a Carlsberg can, and you can just about see the “Probably the best” slogan on the front. I love the machine wrapped cord, a technique I also learned this weekend – the green boucle works well with the embossed leaves on the metal.

I can foresee several more bookwraps in my future!
