Junk Journal Covers

Junk Journal Covers


These are junk journal covers that are in my personal stash currently. Since it might take me forever and a day to get around to using them, I offer them up here for your perusal. If you are interested in any of the covers listed below, please let me know and I can set them aside for you and create a custom Etsy listing for you to purchase. Covers shown here are not in the shop, since they are my personal stash, and covers in the shop are not shown here, since they are designs I will probably personally never use. Covers in the shop can be added to your shopping cart along with your custom listing prior to purchase if you are also interested in any of those. Please convo me on Etsy via the “Contact Shop Owner” button for more information!

Current Available Fabrics for 6 x 9 Inch Clasp Envelope Junk Journal Covers


These are low resolution, quick and dirty scans of the current fabrics available in my stash for making junk journal covers. Fabric selection could change at any moment as I am also a quilter. Journal covers can and will vary from the exact scan image you are seeing depending on where the fabric is cut. I aim to waste as little as possible when cutting. Some fabrics are only tall enough to be an inside liner and this will be noted on the image. Please ask me about specific fabric combinations, one fabric for the outside of the cover and one for the inside liner, so I can confirm availability via the “Contact Shop” button on my Etsy storefront. Ecru cotton thread will be used for the stitching. Feel free to ask questions via your Etsy convo*.
