This original journal or notebook cover has been carefully hand-crafted and sewn, starting with a base fabric of handmade felt, made using multi-coloured merino wool, silk and other fibres on a cream background. The finished felt piece was then stitched into before being made up into a book cover.
The cover is softly padded, lined with hand-dyed bright pink cotton fabric and oversewn several times around the edges. A length of pink grosgrain ribbon has been stitched along the spine and a narrow satin ribbon forms an attached bookmark.
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.
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 love making felt using the traditional wet-felting technique, and adding other fibres and fabrics in the process to create a unique piece of fabric each time. Each felted piece takes about an hour (and lots of elbow-grease!) to felt. Once dry, it can be trimmed, stitched and decorated before being made up as a cover. A single book cover can take the best part of a day to complete, and each one is a unique piece of usable art.
