In the Studio, Textile Journal Covers

129twigandvine—in the studio, journal covers by ilo collective, etsy

A blue and green flowered skirt, a blue lace shift and a deep orange shirt were among the garments Denise and I scissored up to make four fabric covers for composition books last Friday. Here are the results of our two hour book fest in the studio. We took these to Zuzu’s in Norwich, Vermont. More new items are appearing on the henhouse and ilo shop this week.

I’m pretty fond of the orange and pear. Do you have a favorite?

There will be more.

No, I was so focused on the teapot! So, yes, the striking background is strikingly familiar…. – Mom again

Oh these are so spiffy. That’s how a journal should look: comfortable, like a pair of soft slippers and the warm aroma of coffee beans.

Thanks, David. Perhaps coffee beans and slippers should be on a future cover!

The Blue Bird is my favorite. Did you use a pattern?
