A fabric give away.
After some more sorting in the studio and my regular fabric storage (as opposed to bookcloth storage) I came up with this pile of fabrics I would love to pass on to someone who sews. I originally purchased these fabrics when I was on a journal bag craze.
For a variety of reasons I never got around to using the above fabrics. It's time they had a new and productive live somewhere else. They are thicker, upholstery style fabrics. I don't know what the yardage is on these pieces, but there is more than sufficient to make a decent size bag with most pieces, or mix and match them in some creative way.
So if you sew and are crazy to make a journal bag for yourself, and live somewhere in the U.S., post a comment and let me know that you would like to be included in a drawing for this batch of fabrics. I'll draw a winner on Sunday night at 6 p.m. (CST) and post the winner on Monday.
While one could back these fabrics with paper and use them for bookcloth I am not recommending that as they are pretty hefty. If you like to make soft covered journals with hefty fabrics these might interest you.
