This wrap will suit books of varying thicknesses, up to approximately 2 ½” thick.

– All embroidery is completed with simple stitches, The front of the wrap features an embroidered lilac with dimensional petal detail and 2 stitched butterflies. An embroidered verse with pieced borders is revealed each time you open the wrap.

– The front of the book wrap features an embroidered lilac. The panels are embroidered with simple stitches, sometimes mixing 2 thread colours to achieve a variegated look. The lilac panel is embellished with petals cut from easily made “double-sided fabric”. They are attached to the panels with central embroidery, leaving the edges free to sit up a little from the background. This adds a subtle dimensional quality to the design.

– The “Sweet Lilac – Book Wrap” pattern includes iron on transfers for both embroidered panels, a full sized pattern sheet and an abundance of photographic and illustrated instruction. A small project to keep or to create as a gift… this sweet design can also be personalised with your own chosen text for the inside panel.
