Work in progress

Nice grey linen style fabric for the base material




The fabric with flowery embroidery is actually very pale mauve,sorry for the bad photo!!! Northern light.................. And for the surprise effect...............................................................


Giraffe fake fur, yummy soft fabric for the interieur to keep books nice and warm ;) OR jolie damask style fabric in mauve for a more classic approach. Which one do you prefer?



Do you like the unfinished frayed look or would you prefer clean seams?

i think the giraffe is the best, and i think you should go with neat seams, but perhaps a little frayed in the detail. sorry this is so late, i only read it properly now!

Iris,
