holy carp, I have been bookbinding for almost two years and have been PAINFULLY punching all my holes with an awl or a needle, or slicing an xacto down the folded edge (easier, but it looks so icky).
...It never occurred to me to use nails and a hammer!!!! brilliant!!! so much easier and dang if that's not ten times more fun!! thank you for posting this!!!

They last really well..I've had a couple friends use them to write all the way through and they've held up, the only thing that was a bit weak at the end was the glue holding the front and back pages to the outside, it started pulling up a bit.  So you might want to make your own choice on that. But the sewing and the binding held up great!

Thank you so much for this tutorial!  It is just awesome. I have made journals similar to these, but didn't use the sewing machine. I'll have to get mine out and try this one.  I made Day Planners for all of our female relatives for Christmas this past year. Everyone seemed to love them! I loved making them.
