Junk Journal with Embroidered Cover

From top Summer Junk Journal 01 for sale made by Studio iHanna

Today I am sharing the finished Summer Junk Journal (no 1) in all it’s glory. I love how it feels in my hands, and how it looks with the decorated and embroidered cover. I like how the soft fabric art piece changes when you make it into a hard cover for a journal like this, […]

Embroidered Junk Journal Covers

Handmade Junk Journal by Hanna Andersson (detail of embroidered cover)

I love creating patchwork collages both with papers and fabrics. In this post I will show you two textile art pieces that took quite a while to finish, but it was a joy to stitch them together. Both have a found pink rose embroidery that I recycled from the thrift shop and included here, and […]

Sewing day in iHanna’s Studio

I love having friends (and sometimes one or two small friends) over in my studio. It is super fun to share from my stash, sometimes papers and sometimes other materials. This was a sewing day.

Maybe it has something to do with being born in the seventies, when everything was dark brown, with hints of orange. Back then even living room walls here in Sweden (where everything gets […]

Hand sewing is my new knitting

Hand sewing is my new knitting

As I’m tired of knitting I’m turning to handsewing for the first time, as a craft. And I like it a lot. Stitching those tiny stitches to attach pieces of fabric to another one is as meditative and repetitive as knitting. It has proven this last week that handsewing is great on quilt meetings, waiting […]
