My book is now complete.
I used recycled paper shopping bags for this book and left the handles attached to my pages. The work of Lois Walpole inspired me to weave these handles together. I have used torn strips from Duttons for Buttons paper bags, which were the perfect yellow to co-ordinate with the central embroidered panel, and this book can now be carried!
I had seven bag handles to weave together. I started with weaving each one individually then grouped it to 3 + 1 + 3 which resulted in this ‘grooved’ weave detail.
Here is the back cover:
Shopping bag from YaYa boutique (thick brown paper), crumpled. Then I wrote ‘designers designers’ in blue and yellow wax crayons, over plastic canvas grid. I ironed the paper flat, which melted the wax crayon and dulled it.
