j_rabbette: I LOVE the sheet music cover!  I found some fabric just like that which I'm planning to make a journal with...someday...but yours really is beautiful.

rockiegirl: The second journal on your blog is fabulous!  I mean, the other one looks great too, but I adore the flower!  Did you stitch onto the fabric before gluing it to the cardboard?

To anyone who's afraid of the coptic stitch: I put off learning to bind journals because it looked so hard in that diagram.  But once I finally sat down with it and did it, it's so easy!  I've made several now and they always turn out looking very nice.

KittyKurl: I'm sure yours is amazing. You should post some pics of it!

recycled_earth: Thanks! For that brown journal, I didn't use cardboard, but that foam sheet stuff that are usually for kid crafts. I found some just lying around in a package I didn't open from the closing of a craft store from a couple years ago. It's easier to cut and shape than cardboard is. The cardboard I used for that plaid one was the back of a used ruled notebook. I wouldn't suggest that cardboard for journals because mine has become wonky, probably because I used too much glue. But that foam stuff is amazing! Here is link of what it looks like if any of you don't know what I'm talking about:

recycled _earth: I glued the back paper to the foam as well as the fabric cover. Then I stitched around the edges and the (wretched) flower. Then I glued the pages to the whole thing. Et voila!

I haven't tried to do a paper cover, mainly because I don't have any cool stiffish paper, also because I like fabric too much and have more of a variety.

I'm not really afraid of the coptic stitch, it's just that it looks really confusing to me. XD
