I’ve been looking for a long time for something to make Traveler’s Notebook covers out of that would be strong, durable, nice looking, unique and not an animal byproduct.
There are a few things that are usable on the market. There’s always faux leather, which is used for upholstery, purses and jackets.
There is also a Kraft Tex Paper Fabric, which I have played a bit with.
But neither of these gave me what I was looking for. So I’ve been experimenting on my own, and also trying things that other people have come up with. Some things worked, some sort of worked and some were dismal failures.
This week, I have a project in mind. I did a small test and was fairly happy with the results. Since then, I’ve been trying variations of the same concept. I think I’ve figured out what I like, so this week I’m moving up to a more serious trial.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
