applique & freehand embroidered zombie toucan notebook cover with A6 sketchbook inside.

this embroidered cover features a rather dapper zombie toucan in bright pink, yellow, turquoise, green & blue cotton fabrics.
he’s perched ominously, by his creepy corpse blue linen claw-hands.
his eyeball in hand embroidered.

i individually hand-cut each piece of fabric, and then (very patiently!) layer & applique them onto cotton calico to build up the image, before “drawing” the intricate details on freehand, using free motion embroidery.
there's no computerised wizardry here; each cover is made entirely on a domestic sewing machine.
it's entirely cut, stitched and handmade , with care, by me, ensuring each notebook cover is unique, well made and securely constructed.

the slipcover itself is made from heavy weight calico which has been pre-washed several times so it’s soft and should not shrink when washed.
the seams are overlocked and topstitched and the cover is stiffened with interfacing.
the calico cover is washable and re-usable, simply replace the A6 sketchbook when it's full.
the sketchbooks are manufactured in the UK by Seawhites of Brighton. they are quality casebound hard cover books, containing all media cartridge paper.
