Book Covers by Vivienne Challans

Here’s an idea to personalise your 2019 diary or protect a favourite book . . .

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but these covers are so delightful, they can turn even an ordinary notebook into something rather special.
Bright, cheerful, fun to make and extremely tactile, each of them is a work of art.
Vivienne is a member of the Embroiderers Guild and this is her first contribution to our website, but hopefully not the last! She has used Lutradur 100gsm and 130gsm to create these colourful covers and, in her own words, describes how she made them – “I used Heat Transfer Paints for the base colour and then drew into the Lutradur with Inktense Pencils. I then machine stitched into the fabric and hand stitched to add texture. I used a soldering iron to add details to edges and ‘painted’ the finished book covers with acrylic varnish before making up.”
Multi-coloured square book cover, decorated with wavy lines of machine and hand stitching.

A very colourful example, ideal for jotting down bright ideas.

Brightly coloured book cover with a large leaf design, tied with a light grey ribbon.

Gorgeous iridescent shades of blue and green combine to create this lovely example.

. . . the back view is every bit as colourful as the front.

On behalf of Spunart, we would like to wish everyone a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.
