Betty's Book Covers

While the showers come and go, my experiment today is book covers. This one uses the same templates that I designed for my figure brooches but I felted them onto a piece of vintage blanket instead of stitching. I really like the softer effect. 
The nightmare was the edges of the blanket and the fraying. I've felted them and have done two rows of machine stitching on each edge - I'm going to use it and see what happens. 
Maybe felting the figure onto a piece of blanket and then mounting it onto cotton fabric is the answer - I'll try that next! 

Happy Easter, Everyone! Betty x
