The beautiful fabric on this book was one of the last remaining remnants taken from what used to be a long, wraparound skirt. It’s a delicate, slightly shimmery, Thai acrylic silk with a slightly crushed texture.
The colour fades from a deep red at the top, to a burnished orange. The bottom third has a white printed floral design overlaid, with the occasional tiny motif floating above.
If I recall correctly, this book had handmade white endpages with a silver floral flourish pattern, but no bookmark.
I made this for a friend who’s creative in several different ways, so I imagine it’s now full of her glorious writing, some poems, and maybe even the notes for her acting rehearsals or music classes!
