Faux Leather Notebook Covers

Recently I held a workshop for one of my ladies and her two charming granddaughters, who were visiting with Grandma for the half term holidays. It was such an enjoyable afternoon spend in  delightful,keen and enthusiastic company. 

Comparing work so far

of paint for extra texture

The three finished works of art
After some careful cutting out, strengthening with iron on stiffening and finally some machine sewing, you can see their amazing faux leather notebook covers. I am sure you will see why all three were extremely proud and delighted with their beautiful creations.

  1. Hi Su!
    I already left a comment on your blog, but just wanted to say again how lovely these journal covers are! I can't think of a nicer way to spend a day than in your studio learning your wonderful techniques!!
    Love,
