Quilted tote bags
Laura’s best-selling craft items include:
Book Covers for composition books. Each stitched cover comes with a book inserted, simply remove and replace when desired.
|Here is an inside view of the vinyl -covered composition books. This book is softer than the college composition books, but has no printing inside the covers. These are covered with wallpapers of my own design.||
Here is an inside view of the "standard" card-covered composition books, this is firmer, and what is inserted into the quilted-paper bookcovers, for books I sell at shows.
The Wallpaper-covered books are vinyl composition books, and covered with a plastic stick-on wallpaper. I design these wallpapers using my fabric designs, which now number over 600 patterns. A random assortment will be available at any show I exhibit my products at.
The quilted bookcovers are made of polyester thread quilted onto Kraftex paper, a product from Germany made with a synthetic silicone as part of the otherwise normal paper. it is extremely durable, with a thickness and a "hand" which resembles leather, especially the more you handle it. It is washable!, so feel free to sponge off the covers, or remove the book inserts and soak in a sink to clean. Be sure to allow the covers to thoroughly dry before returning the book inside.
I choose thread colors which show well on the cover color. NO copyright information is on the products, it is only on these photos.
5" x 3.5" composition books are "cardboard", inserted my quilted covers. Rhinoceros Polar Bear Swims
Smaller covered notebooks These little composition books are not made with sewn signatures, but are durable enough. I quilt them in four color choices: dove grey, black, white, "natural" which is paper-bag brown. Some patterns are small and have full images front and back, some images really are BIG subjects, so I span the image across the front-back.
Large covered composition books These books are 8" x 10.5" (plus half inch depth).They have sewn signatures. Here are some examples of the covers I quilt for them. Any of my designs on this website can be composed for a notebook cover, so these are just suggestions. Some images are awesome just fit-to-page, others I prefer to build a landscape background for. Same four colors.
