With Jess and Denyse Schmidt as inspiration I spent a few hours last night making these fun Journals. The first one (the larger one) was so much fun that I had to make another. Than knowing how much my mom loves light houses I made another. One she might enjoy.
All were made by cutting and folding a piece of cardstock to the size I wanted, than sewing fabric to it, and finally sewing in the pages. It was fun and oh so easy. All I need to do now is get some Velcro or something so I can keep the flap closed.
This one was my first attempt. While fully functional it looks a little sloppy to me
I used a zig-zag stitch on this one to sew on the fabric and I like is so much more. (I like this one the best)
My mom will love this. I had to reload the bobbin while making this one and never quite got the tension quite right again. But all in all it turned out well.
I have a few more ideas of ways to cover these so if I have a moment to spare I will probably make some more.
