This was my first attempt at a journal, I wanted to do this for the Reading Rainbow swap. 

For the cover I used thin cardboard and covered it with fabric, folding it at the bottom to make the pockets.  I ran a ribbon through the inside of the pockets to the outside of the book, to keep the pockets in place at the edges of the journal.  The inside pages are cardstock. I'm not thrilled with how the stitching looks on the inside, although I think it looks better in person than it looks in the picture.  Smiley
