Journal with a fringe...

just like your favorite jeans shorts! I recycled a used hard cover by recovering it with upholstery fabric and sewing in some hand cut drawing paper. My journal is wearing a mini-skirt!

Mini drawing pad

I made a mini book out of a salvaged vintage book cover. Features an opera singer on the front and a piano man on the back. Hand bound with linen waxed thread. Metal corners help hide the wear and tear of a used cover. Seven signatures of blank heavy-duty drawing paper are sewn inside. Classic! I hope Gia likes it!

Blue bird Journal

Hand bound with linen waxed thread. Six signatures of blank drawing paper, about 50 pages. A felt blue bird has been sewn to the front cover which is a neat brown and blue leaf cotton/poly fabric. End pages are black fabric. I'm getting more confident about this's totally fun and I like making them.
