recap of materials needed

I thought I'd post the list of materials needed for the fabric videos below:
2 pieces of contrasting fabric
polyfil batting (like you use to stuff a pillow)
crewel #2 needle
pearl cotton #5 floss (or embroidery floss)
scissors

I'm tickled pink to see what people have made so far after watching the videos!

  1. Love the fabric journals. I am a complete novice when it comes to fabric but I made 2 pillows. My question is when you sew them together do you use the whip stitch to connect the pieces? I do not have a machine so this is being done all by hand. if you can post or email that would be appreciated as I want to make a journal. Thanks so much for showing how to make these journals.

  13. Hi Teesha! I've played the first video at least 4 times to get a good look at all those finished journal covers.I decided to add the embelishing stitiches within the pillows after I stiched all the pillows together. I'm also collaging on my pages before I sew them in the book. I worked on it this weekend and posted the cover on my blog.

    Thanks not just for the inspiration, but for giving it so freely. These days it's all about signing up for everything before you can get ideas. I love your giving nature.

  14. Teesha, I took a class from you years ago at Art Continuum in Cleveland. I love this method of journal making so much that most of my family have received fabric journals from me. They like to fight over the ONE fabric journal that I make every year to contribute to the family Christmas white-elepahnt gift exchange. Thank you for your brilliant inspiration!

    I am all over fabric these days and am working on a mini quilt photo album/journal. I just put up a post on it on my blog.
    You are an inspiration in every way.

    Your videos were amazing and very inspiring. I'm always looking for a small project to carry with me to fill in those down times. I plan to do a purse (or 2) and even try to make a journal which I have never done. Thank you for sharing!
