Second one I've tried making
It was super fun times. I messed up a tad when sticking in the pages. When you close the book the inside end pages bend in to the spine. Boo! I would advise anyone who is starting out with making journals and notebooks to use a spine, it is so much easier to get it right. The first journal I made, I used a ribbon instead and it turned out to be far too narrow and so the covers didn't sit right blah blah. http://curiouslycrafty.wordpress.com/tutorials/
is the tutorial I used to work out making the cover. I didn't use the measurements (just folded A4 pages in half) and also learnt how to do the coptic stitch a long time ago, from somewhere else, and I can't remember where... sorry..
I made this for my friend who is leaving for America (today actually
) for a year. MySummerOfLove is the name for his blog so I figured since it was for him, it was the perfect thing to call it.
Inside view of cover.
Coptic stitch all the way
I love that fabric so so much...
And lastly a blury picture from the side.
So thanks for looking
