CLOTH COVERED JOURNALS
I have begun covering everything with my favorite fabrics, not only boxes to store things, but all my designs and patterns are now on shelves in attractive cloth covered binders and notebooks and boxes. Historically, books were often covered in fabrics to preserve their preciousness and many can be seen today on the antiques market. Vintage style prints are used to cover a 7-1/2”x 10” lined composition book. Covers are uniquely made to be removable and a spare notebook is included for the future. Journals may be ordered plain or with simple vintage looking embroidered titles added. There is a pattern to make your own covers for these journals and three ring binder versions. I made one as a gift for my mother with a picture of my sister when she was small, now dead from cancer, with the words “Remember Me” embroidered with the picture.

STACK OF THREE COVERED BOXES
As I have been trying to make my in-the-house workshop more of a room instead of a mess, attractive storage has been a challenge. Since I love fabrics and find displaying them in plain sight a pleasure, I began covering everything from these stacks of boxes to all of the many notebooks and binders of designs and patterns. The results are quite pleasing. And so, here are some of these things for you. Store sewing supplies or art supplies in them or just look at them. These are not only carefully covered on the outside, but lined as well. Sizes are 8”,9” and 10”. Fabrics are choice vintage style prints from the Civil War Era.
