Made this for my niece's 6th birthday - it's my first journal.  Grin

It's cardboard flaps with fabric on the outsides and paper on the insides. I didn't feel like trying to learn coptic stitch, so I just tied it off with some sturdy knots and a bow. I cut some lined paper down to size so she can practice her letters or just doodle.

That is so cute! And such a good idea, to start someone writing or at least being creative or doodling at a young age.

That's so sweet! I love the daisies and the pink floral pattern paper on the inside (goes so well with the cover).

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! It was a hit - her mom told me Meg was asking her to spell all kinds of words the other night so she could write in it.

The funny part is that because it was her journal, what she was writing about had to be a "secret", but since she's only 6 she was asking her mom how to spell almost every other word. Needless to say, mom figured out she was writing about how she had been shy at her birthday party.  Grin

I remember my first diary Smiley I had begged for one and finally got one when I was 6. I LOVE this. It's such an awesome way for a little tiny young woman to start formulating complicated thoughts and ideas!
And so gorgeous too!
