Book Swap #11: PrairiePeasant


Laura of PrairiePeasant has contributed a fabric softcover mini book made from batik fabric her husband brought back from Burkina Faso, Africa. It's filled with handmade paper from a Winnipeg paper company called Botanical Paperworks and bound with cotton embroidery floss in a longstitch binding.


You can find more fabric journals, as well as a variety of other books and paper goodies, in Laura's shop: prairiepeasant.etsy.com.

This was the book I received and I love it! I'm a textile designer, so the special fabric really struck me. I also love to travel and hope to get to Africa one day. Books, fabric, travel, all of my loves in one book! Thanks so much, I really love it :)

CinderLisa, I'm looking forward to receiving whatever you've sent my way! Your work is quite lovely, and I can't wait to see what comes in the post.

Kristin, I'm so glad you like this book! I hemmed and hawed about it before deciding what to send to you, so I'm glad I made the right choice.
