Default Paper fabric source

Hey All,

Here is link for paper fabric that you can sew, paint, emboss or draw on it.
Supposed to have a leather like texture.

kraft-tex® DESIGNER Sampler 6 Colors Hand-Dyed & Prewashed - C&T Publishing

Might be good for journals covers?

That's kind of interesting. At first I was like "wha....?" but clicked through to the link and I can see it being handy for multiple uses. The fact that it says "tear-resistant" and that it stands up to wear makes it a lot more promising than most papers. Thanks for introducing a new thing into my/our awareness!

I saw a YouTube video about this product last year, it looked interesting but just did not see enough need for my purposes. I was afraid it would be yet another "sitting on the shelf never to be used" purchase, so I passed.

I bought some of that a few years ago at a local fabric shop. I did use it to make a small storage basket. I never thought about stamping on it. I may need to dig it out of my basement and experiment with some mixed media on it.

My mom uses it to make folders and pouches. If anyone has any questions about it, I can pass them along and get you an answer.

I have some Kraft-tek I bought a few years ago with the intention to using to make sturdy mini albums. It comes in rolls and it IS tough. You cannot tear it. I tried. But it cuts and die cuts well. Haven't tried to sew it but I don't see why you can't.
Now to see it in colors.....making me crazy. I will have to get some.
