An 8 page blank fabric sketchbook, ready-to-stitch, for your own design.
This is a small version of my original blank fabric sketchbook that has a unique folding design that allows you to add your artwork to a pre-made book without leaving any messy workings on the backs of the pages.
Easy to sew into using hand or machine, this book makes it simple to try out different textile art techniques and add decoration to the pages as you go along.
Each page can be removed from the binding to allow you to sew onto it using any technique, and then enclose the wrong sides within the pages, hiding all of your knots and thread tails. This makes it easy to create your own stitched journal as a keepsake, sketchbook or scrapbook.
The pages are a natural linen which is a neutral colour which will go with any colour scheme and looks nice if left uncovered in parts. Each page is secured with eyelets and ring bindings.
8 blank pages (4 folded sheets).
Each book is made by hand.
Including ring bindings the book measures approx 8cm x 13.5cm (3.25" x 5.25") and the sewing area for each page is 8cm x 12cm (3.25" x 4.75").
The book has a vinyl title 'Stitchbook' on the front cover and 'Kim Edith' on the back. These can be incorporated into the design or covered with fabric or stitching.
Suitable for any level of sewing experience.
There is another version of this mini sketchbook - a cotton version with 10 pages. Check that out if you want a natural cotton colour, or need more pages.
This would be great for a first stitchbook project - it may be small but you can fit a lot of information onto the pages! I've also used Photo Transfer Paper and Lettering Stamps to create a book featuring many years of portrait photos.
How to Use:
Pull the binding rings apart and remove one page.
Open the page out.
Add artwork to the sides facing outwards.
When finished, refold and add back onto the binding rings.
Close the rings by aligning clasp and pushing together
