Chic Sparrow Extra-Wide All-American in Spice

This arrived from Chic Sparrow towards the end of last week. I have not had time to write about it until now. I love it! As I have mentioned before, I prefer fauxdoris that are thicker, stiffer, wider and with more elastics than the original. I use Filofax-type organisers with BIG rings and traveller’s notebook covers are no exception. I tend to use at least 6 books plus 2 plastic zipped sleeves, 3 craft sleeves and various other bits and pieces.

I love the fact that this one has a pen loop and inside pockets and flap.

I have not set it up yet as I do not have much time to savour it, so it will have to wait. I general use a combination of extra thin Midori refills and lined and grid paper from Ray Blake of My Life All In One Place, who kindly makes me insert booklets for a very reasonable fee. Because this cover is so wide, even stuffed full as a brick there will be no overhang.

  1. I didn’t see this on the website…is the all American under a different name? I absolutely LOVe this color!!!

    1. They stopped making them I believe, Jane, which is a real pity because I absolutely loved this leather. They had three colourways – a black one, a lighter brown and this one.

  2. Love this colour!
    Wow! It is delicious.
    I wasn’t so sure about the All American Sparrows, but the more photos I see of the Spice version the more I am persuaded. Tell me Janet, is the leather on this one very stiff? Have you decided what you are going to use this Sparrow for?
    And…I love your mantra!

    1. It is quite stiff but will soften up with use. I am going to use this one for my sales activity over the summer. I do sales on my blog and on various online sites, and I usually list what I want to sell, prices, when I post them off and when they have been received.
