My blogging friend Chela makes beautiful fabric journals (and other fabric art) and recently used Kraft-Tex to make a cover for last year’s journal pages. You can read about how she did it in her post here. However, she had some difficulty with pictures on her site, so I have some pictures of her process below:
Chela used a tool to crease the Kraft-Tex, and I do too–it’s tough enough to stand up to this
She also used clips to hold it for sewing–of course you don’t want pin holes!
She decorated the cover of her journal with stitching and buttons–Kraft-Tex can be stitched either by hand or by machine
Chela had trouble with glue for applique, but stitching worked fine. If you want glue, I use the Aleene’s Jewel-It glue with good results on Kraft-Tex
And here are some of her creative journal pages. Click on any image for a larger view.

Thank you for introducing me to this great product. I am having fun exploring the many possible uses for Kraft-Tex.
You are so creative I am sure you will have lots of ideas!
This post caused me to explore Chela’s blog and wow.
But mostly, I just love journals…anything that offers sturdiness in a cover as well as versatility to be stitched upon – well, this is something worth exploring for my own purposes, too!
Thanks, as always, Zippy.
And Chela lives in the state to which you will be moving. Maybe you will meet!
Really cool…maybe closer than you and I!!!???
That is some amazing Kraft-texing!
Chela is very creative 🙂
