I'm not sure where's best to post this, as while it's a journal and essentially papercrafting, it is primarily machine sewn and has a fabric cover... Ho hum, here it goes...
I made this a while ago, but I'm still working on filling it full of quotes and whimsies on post-its...
It has 10 signatures of plain printer paper with covers of fun paper I found in MiL's journal making stash along with the book board inside the covers. The fabric I had left over from Bear's apron making project. Each signature is machine stitched together, and then hand stitched into the journal. It's not properly bound by any means, but I am very proud of it because it turned out exactly how I wanted and I love the haphazard, primitiveness of it.



Hand sewing those signatures in did make me cry a little, I was pushing a regular sewing needle through the fabric cover and 8 sheets of paper... I may have drawn blood once or twice...
C&C gratefully received as always.

So lovely! I love the fabric you chose, and the torn paper edges peeking out.
