If you go back to page 2 you will see the basic instructions. I am not organized enough to actually do a tutorial as I kind of make it up as I go. However, check out the instructions, and if you have any specific questions feel free to PM me.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

Great idea!

I take it that's elastic holding in the pens and glue. I will have to make myself one because I am going overseas in January. I love to stick things in my journal so it might be good ot pack a little pair of scissors and a little glue stick. I totally didn't think of this before!

I use a spiral bound journal so it has a little room to expand when I stick stuff in.

Now this is fabulous! I have tons of boring journals I write in, but with one of these journal holders, no journal will ever be boring!!!!

schnerby, I didn't use elastic to hold the items in ... I wanted something pretty so I used fabric and then machine embroidered over it. I have standard items I use so as I was laying it out I used the actual items for reference on where to sew. My journal is also spiral bound and "expands as I go", and I have a 5x7 envelope I glue into the back of my journal to hold the little goodies I pick up along the way before I glue them in. I also often throw a few sheets of drawing paper (or scrapbook pages as I am hand doodling my daughter's scrapbook pages) in there, too. It all fits fine.

Such a clever chook!
I'm not so faithful to my pens though. Some make my handwriting look pretty, some make me write like a 6-year-old so I think I would use elastic or longer rectangle pen holders (like a knitting needle caddy) so that I can change what I put in 'em.
Nice idea about the envelope too. I have a felt cover for my regular diary (for appointments and stuff) with a pocket sewn on but the envelope would be a but more secure.

Awesome job anyway!  Grin

On a do-over I would use elastic, too, and just dye it to match. The pens sections work fine, but not all glue sticks are the same size ... even when it appears they are!

You could use elastic encased in a fabric tube, like an elasticized pocket without the pocket. Smiley .  Then it would be pretty and functional!
