I like Messy


I made myself a sketchbook cover for my Moleskine.  Time to try some stuff.

Drops of Daler Rowney acrylic artists ink onto denim.

Stitch all around it.

Sew on a messy loop with some scraps. Perfect for my pen.


View of the back. I like how it creeped along the side.

Some day I will run out of this fabric I dyed in a class years ago- until then, it's my fabric to do test runs with.

Insert sketchbook. Ready to travel.

What a fun idea to make a cover for it! Looks so pretty.

I'm not good at "messy" but you are awesome at it! It's a style, and you wear it so well!

I'm not very good with messy either -- and I've even tried to be deliberately messy but often miss the mark. I love the concept, now how do I accomplish it in real life?

Very cool idea! Works much better than a rubber band I'm sure!
