I am still in mood for stationary this week, it must be the autumn-y weather. For many the New Year is the time for new calendar and diary, but for me that has always been August. As long as I remember I've bought a new calendar in the end of the summer, and started it when the new school year started. Same goes to all sort of notebooks and diaries: they traditionally are started in January, but I like to have some new ones for Autumn. It is handy for small business planning too as we're heading to the busiest season.
This time I didn't want to run to buy new notebooks but dug into my existing paper stash, and da-dah, no shopping needed! I had
quite a few one or two books I had forgotten, I think I had them from a sale somewhere, and they're otherwise perfect but the covers were not the greatest - probably why I had tucked them into the cupboard in the first place.
But as a
happy hoarder very thrifty and sensible person, I always have some fabric scraps around the studio, and I started putting together some new covers for the books. And even I started with sewing only, I somehow ended up making a few covers with needle felted figures too. And matching pen cases, oops!
I really do not need all of covers I have made, so some of them will be in my shop here just in case you should have an ugly but otherwise wonderful notebook in hand, you're so welcome to have a closer look! And as usual, I still have some more in progress, and they'll jump into my shop later too. I really like the idea of the re-usable book cover made of re-used fabrics, it really can't get more environment friendly than that or what do you think?
