#ShowYourWork

 

traveller journal

 

Made from a lovely soft piece of leather I found for 20p in a recycle shop, lined with quilting fabric and fastened with a leather thong. This is my prototype re-fillable journal. I plan to make many! And then to design beautiful notebooks, diaries, calendars and pages to fill them. I’m happy with:

  • the colour scheme
  • the fold-over function to protect the page edge
  • the macrame knotted accents

I’m unhappy with:

  • the stability of the lining – it will need additional stitching
  • the thickness of the thongs which close the journal – it’s too fiddly
  • the corners of the leather – need to be rounded to look more “finished”
  • the length of the second inner thong  – it needs to be wider in order to hole a second signature

Additionally I’d like to add some or all of the following features:

  • inner pen or brush holder
  • inner pocket
  • book mark
  • spine adornments – charms or some such

Let me know what you think!

  1. This is utterly gorgeous… fiddly closures and not rounded corners aside, because honestly, some people dig fiddly and corners will round with wear, I adore this beautiful thing, my awesome Munkie friend! LOLOL What a tremendous way to show off the talent and skills that you possess.
