This is my first time posting in this category. *waves*
I guess this could technically go in reconstructed, since I stole the pages from an old notebook, but I think it's its own thing.
At any given time, I have a notebook that I carry everywhere and use to record everything from class notes to to do lists to sketches and random writings. I have a big pile of past ones, with all sorts of stuff in them.
The one I had before this was big, about 12" x 9". It turned out this was really too large. The thing was heavy, and too big for anything smaller than the bag I use when I take my computer places. So I didn't use it as much as I wanted.
My solution was to cut the pages from the old notebook (not show) and use them to make this thing. It was done quickly, and all but the initial sewing was done in a bar while hanging out with friends, so it's not terribly precise. But it's very functional.
The cover is some leather I had lying around. The clasp is a magnetic clasp of the sort used on purses (purchased at the store where I get leather scraps). The stitching that holds the signatures together (there are 6) goes through the cover and is exposed on the spine. The strips of leather add stability to the spine and can also be used to clip pens etc. onto.
Now it goes pretty much everywhere with me.
