Description

Patchworked with cotton fabrics, with added fabric collage detail on the front cover.

***MY FABRIC TN COVERS
All of this batch are in the Midori "regular" size and will fit either my inserts or the commercial Midori inserts. They're patchworked and embellished, with two elastics inside.

The patchwork is "scribble stitched", which is my word for free-stitched with lots of texture, where appropriate. They're affixed to a firm Peltex core for durability, which reduces the potential fabric floppiness. The grommets for the insert elastics are selected for color, but the grommet on the elastic closure was selected for durability, and are reinforced, so you won't get any issues with stretching, even with repeated use. (It may be slightly different in color than the other two, but they are small and unobtrusive. Durability was more important to me in this selection.)

Each comes with ONE HANDMADE INSERT. Paper may vary, and will either be a heavy-ish weight kraft paper that's smooth enough to write on with ease, or a special one-time vintage find of some bright white, coated paper from a print shop that I've never been able to find again. It works like a charm with fountain pens, markers, and even acrylic paint, but watercolor and pencil aren't fond of the coating. (If you remember the old fingerpainting papers, it kind of reminds me of that. It's really kind of neat.)

If there's a pen loop, it's been made for the big cigar-type fountain pens, and can be a little big for narrower barrels. A quick stitch can tighten it, but with the elastic closure in place, pens are pretty secure anyway.

Embroideries are designed and stitched by me, by hand.overs are hand-embroidered by me, from designs I drew myself.

Do not wash. I’m thinking the washing machine would probably eat them alive.

I did make these just slightly bigger than the regular covers to accomodate some extra books, by the way. They’re not technically “chunky”, but will easily hold five inserts, and probably more, if you’re using the midori rubber bands.

(Also, I’m an artist, not necessarily a seamstress. My stitches are rarely straight, but they are pretty, which was my goal. Apologies to any perfectionists — my stitching will probably give you a perma-twitch in your eye.)

Shipping policies

At this time, I can only ship physical items to the domestic USA. (Leaving the house to go to the post office requires pants, and I'm boycotting pants. Because pants.) Luckily, some of what's here is digital, so shipping won't be much of an issue, no matter where you live. <3
