It usually takes me about an hour to reach my office. So reading novel is one of my past-time when I am travelling in the train. This time round I attempted to finish a stitched piece into a novel book cover. I am quite please with the end result; however there are still rooms for improvement. For this finishing, I make use of sewing machine and some invisible threads for the side folds. The right fold of the book cover can be adjusted to fit the thickness of any novel book.
The blackwork pattern was from a japanese cross-stitch magazine I bought last year. I use DMC floss (black and brown) on a 28 ct cashel linen fabric.
