Caterpillar Stitched Box and Book 1


I decided I wanted to see if I could do the caterpillar stitch on the side of a handmade box.  It worked.  I had to do the stitching and then assemble the box but it worked pretty smoothly.  On this one which was the “practice” box I could have put two books inside but I decided to change it up and added some cube letters I had.  I like how it turned out.

This is marvelous.
Has an ancient look and makes one want to open that book.
Something found in a pirates treasure chest.
Creepy good.

This is SO beautiful, John! It has an “earthy” quality about it like something that has been around for a long time: a relic from a time long past that you suddenly discover.
