I am loving making these Sizzix Felt Journals! They are are quick and easy to stitch up and bright and colorful too.
My original plan was to make this a journal cover, but I changed my mind. After making this one, I am dying to try another felt wallet!
And then… the trailer version in honor of the upcoming Paper Trail 15.
That’s right- in three weeks I leave for TWO MONTHS on an international teaching tour with my faithful companion, vintage camper Scotty trailing along behind me. Am I insane? Maybe, but I sure have a fun time 🙂
I cut the different elements from the Travel Trailer, Stitchy Flowers, Grass, Homemade Alphabet and Birds & Butterflies Sizzix dies. They were stitched or glued on the base Journal die. I used a combination of felts- EcoFo Premium for the Journal and Exotic Bamboo felt for the flowers and grass. I like to mix and match them for a variety of colors and weights.
Something to remember when creating a journal cover from felt- it’s floppy. You will need to reinforce the spine or keep the elastic loose. Otherwise, the spine will want to bend in.
