Quilted Stopper

This is one of those fantastic early bottles that is just so beautiful. It is a rich deep cobalt blue. This bottle has lattice & diamond in relief, side upper collar seams; and a fabulous stopper that is marked POISON front, center & top!

I chose a blue check for the body of the Quilted Stopper, and set it on a diagonal like the raised pattern on the original bottle, and a mottled light blue for the neck and stopper.  I added tiny blue beads to give a more dimensional feel at regular intervals.  I used a Tsukineko blue fabric marker to draw in details of the stopper. I made the stopper darker than the neck of the bottle, to give the appearance of transparency.

I used two different fabrics for this bottle as well. I used an autumnal print for the outer bottle, and a golden yellow for the interior. I added text with a Tsukineko marker.
