This unique journal features batik fabric and handmade cotton bias binding. It is quilted around reclaimed cotton fabric, just the way my grandmother taught me. (see below for more info)
There are pockets inside for two pens, or several pencils or even markers. The book is held securely in place with a pocket on the left and a strap on the right. I am including a 200 page, four subject book. It is lined and wire bound so that it lays flat when you are taking notes, making lists, jotting down phone numbers, or journaling to go with those great photos you just took.
It closes with a matching pink button (you have one of these too?) and an elastic.
This line of books can be refilled with our custom eco-friendly inserts. We offer stamping and sketchbook options as well as lined jotters and planners. You can also find notebooks at your local stores that fit nicely.
Please contact me if you have any questions. I am happy to do custom orders with your own fabric or will find fabrics in your color choices.
Quilting without batting!
My Grandmother game me a wealth of information when it came to living in lean times. A lot of those techniques are great examples for environmentally conscious folks today. She said that in her day everyone quilted but most couldn't afford new fabrics and batting. So not only were the quilts made from scraps of fabric but they were quilted over more scraps. The results were warm and durable. I know, as I'd sleep under quilts she'd made as a girl when I went to visit her. My quilted items use this time honored technique to reduce waste and provide durability. When you purchase one of my quilted items, you can rest assured that you are helping the Earth.
