Product description

Review

Have you heard of Kraft-tex? No? Well, let me introduce you. You are going to fall.in.love. I did. You know that little tag on the back of your favorite old pair of Levi's Jeans? You thought it was printed leather, didn't you? It used to be. But now manufacturers use products like Kraft-tex-a tough paper that performs like fabric. It is durable, flexible, washable, paint-able, dye-able, stamp-able, sew-able, emboss-able, fold-able...getting the idea? You can make almost anything with this stuff. And that's what you get to see in kraft*tex Style. The great thing about Kraft-tex is that you can use the raw edge (without turning it under or hemming it) because it won't fray or rip...This book is filled with so many cool projects. You'll be so inspired to make, paint, sew and create with Kraft-tex. suchitysuch.blogspot.com, June 24, 2014 C&T's kraft*tex product is a washable, sewable, paper-based substitute for leather or vinyl. It's ecofriendly, easy to clean, and very durable, making it suitable for a variety of uses, such as handbags, household accessories (e.g., place mats or coasters), and jewelry. This collection of projects, compiled by Stash editor Cerda and featuring numerous designers who have written books or contributed projects to other Stash publications, serves as a commercial for the product. There's no denying that kraft*tex is versatile-the projects showcase painted, sewn, embroidered, distressed, and dyed variations-and the leather-like appearance and durability without the need for specialty leather-cutting and -sewing tools is a selling point. Many of the designs are clever and will appeal to Stash's typical readership of young, hip, modern crafters, and the book will likely accomplish what it sets out to do, which is promote and sell kraft*tex. -VERDICT -Crafters who enjoy sewing projects with a variety of interesting embellishments (and who don't mind a little marketing with their projects) may enjoy this collection. Library Journal, 9/9/14 Creative New Substrate - Here's the best of leather and fabric in one product! It looks, feels and wears like leather, but sews, cuts and washes like fabric. Kraft-Tex, available in white, black and natural, can be used for nearly any kind of sewing project, mixed media work and book-making. Project sized rolls (19 inches by 1 1/2 yards) retail for $12.95, or offer it to customers as yardage from the bolt. Find a great selection of patterns using Kraft-Tex in C&T Publishing's new book, Kraft-Tex Style. A perfect merchandising bundle! American Quilt Retailer, October 2014 Sew, paint, stamp, and distress Kraft-Tex paper fabric. The material-available in five colors-has texture similar to leather but is pliable like fabric. Get instructions for 27 projects, including home decor and accessories, in the Kraft-Tex Style book. Quilts and More, Fall 2015

Did what I expected it to do. Washing it first definitely made it more supple, I haven't done a lot with this product but I can see it's possibilities

Well written. Lots of ideas to inspire all crafters out there eager to try this new media (krafttex). I bought this book as a 'second hand' but it looks like brand new to me.
