Love this


This lovely keepsake notebook cover has been handmade from a collage of complementary fabrics, trimmed with vintage lace and pearly buttons. A length of cream grosgrain ribbon has been stitched along the spine and a narrow satin ribbon forms an attached bookmark. The back features more vintage lace and collaged fabrics.

The cover is softly padded and lined with a toning beige broderie anglaise fabric.

It can be purchased with either a hardback A5 lined notebook, or a hardback A5 sketchbook containing 92 pages (46 sheets) of 140gsm acid-free cartridge paper. The sketchbooks are made in Britain using British paper and are renowned for their high quality. Please select your preferred choice when ordering.

Whichever book you choose, it can be easily replaced with a new one when needed.

This original cover is a one-of-a-kind piece, totally unique, and would make an ideal gift.

The cover measures approx 6.25 x 9 inches (16.5 x 23 cm) closed, 13 x 9 inches (33 x 23 cm) opened flat. The sketchbook shown measures 6 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches (15.3 x 21.6 x 1.4 cm) and fits snugly.

Shipping by Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For (UK) or International Tracked.


I have a large collection of vintage linens, laces and fabrics - some are no longer fit for their original purpose, so I decided to give them a new life as treasured keepsake book covers. Each one is different, created individually, a piece of usable textile art.
