Ideal for writers, artists, designers, quilters... anyone who writes or sketches ideas in a journal or notebeook. Alternatively, this cover is suitable for protecting a standard paperback book (or hiding its title from curious onlookers on a plane or train!), and it makes a great cover for a Barnes and Noble Nook (see picture here: http://yfrog.com/0cio1zj).

For a while, I've had an idea to create a quilted piece in the style of Piet Mondrian paintings --- lots of blocks of red, yellow and blue, against a white background and outlined in black. So I spent about 8 hours doing just that! I've made it now, so will never make another one.

I quilted 'in the ditch' and right close to the edges of the bias tape, then made the 'Mondrian' fabric I created into a journal cover, lining it in a bright red fabric and adding a bookmark in black webbing.

The finished journal cover measures 13 x 8.75 in (33 x 22 cm) when opened out, and can take a journal or notebook up to 6.5 x 8.5 in (16 x 21.5 cm; or A5).

Fabric protector has been added.

To keep postage and shipping to a reasonable rate, I DO NOT provide a notebook/journal with the cover -- the photos with the notebook inserted are only to illustrate how it looks.

This cover has been well constructed -- it took 8+ hours to make, so the price really only reflects the cost of materials.


I can make these in any color -- check out my Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rhondamadeit where you'll find more than 200 photos of fabrics in my stash, arranged by color and theme. Then click Request Custom Item on the right sidebar of my Etsy home page: http://RhondaMadeIt.etsy.com and let me know what you'd like.
