These last few weeks I've been busy working away on my new website, with lots of new personal projects up on it. I think I'll show you a few of my favourites, starting with this cloth book Soft/hard which was inspired by Louise Bourgeois, and I wrote about it here.
I really enjoyed the thoughtful, quite meditative process of the stitching, and am pretty pleased with the results. I used a very stiff double-sided iron-on interfacing to help give form to the pages, which feels nice but if I was to do it again I would use single-sided stuff. The way the canvas clings around the stitches makes them quite lumpy-bumpy looking, which is fine, but you know – live and learn!
