Back in July of 2014
I was invited to be a part
of the Creative Troupe for C&T Publishing.
They publish wonderful craft and quilting books.
It's a really fun opportunity for me
to get to play with new products
before they are released to the general public.
The hard part has been keeping it all very quiet all this time.
I'm not very good at keeping secrets :)
Today I received the email that said
we can finally show off our projects!
I recieved a roll of Kraft -tex in chocolate brown.
(you can find it here)
What is Kraft-tex you ask?
It feels like construction paper
and it is actually made of paper,
but after you wash it something amazing happens.
Yes, I said wash it.....in the washing machine.
It takes on the characteristics of leather.
The more you wash it, the more "leather-like" it becomes.
I washed mine and dried it in the dryer 4 times.
It's sturdy and easy to work with.
You can sew it and cut it and paint on it.
The possibilities are endless!
It's just plain awesomesauce.
You can find my Owl Needlebook as
well as the other fun projects submitted on Pinterest.
You can also print the tutorial for my Owl Needlebook
