|Colorful Case Bound Journal|
And this one:
|Blue Case Bound Notebook|
These are some of my favorite journals I've done. I think it's because of the lovely feel of the fabric on the covers & their beautiful colors! I LOVE color!
I'm now crushing on so many more beautiful fabrics. I want to buy LOTS & make miiilllions of fabric covered journals. (Um, you can make this possible by buying one... or 7, or 12 or whatever, so that I'm FORCED to make more... hehe!)
I buy fat quarters, usually in bundles, because I don't need much to cover a journal, and I like variety, so I don't really want to make 50 journals that all look exactly the same with the same fabric just because I have to use it all. With one fat quarter piece I can make about 3 journals (depending on their size). Here's a sampling of packages that I've had in my "shopping cart" still resisting the urge to hit the "buy" button. I don't think I'm gonna last much longer though.
A local (to me in SE Michigan) seller Pink Castle Fabrics has some really fun, blogger-selected fat quarter packs that I'm loving:
|Holly's Road Trip Bundle by Holly from Bijou Lovely|
|Orange You Glad Bundle by Just a Bit Frayed|
|What's Cookin' Bundle by Kiss Kiss Quilt|
How cool are those right?
I've also discovered some great & fairly inexpensive bundles from a lovely little shop called Hawthorne Threads that I found by accident:
|Summerlove Fat Quarter Bundle in Sunkissed|
|Dress Up Days Fat Quarter Bundle in Grape|
|Flying Free Fat Quarter Bundle|
|Apple of My Eye Fat Quarter Bundle in Red|
Do you know any other great online shops from which to by packs of fat quarter bundles? Which ones of the options above are your favorites? Help a girl out & let me know which you think would be best gracing the covers of some new journals!
