Handmade Journal

I follow (loosely) the blog Sketchbook Challenge.  It is a great source of inspiration (and intimidation). Several months ago I noticed the instructions  (pdf file) for creating a fabric journal from Sue Bleiweiss.  Here is my first attempt at creating a handmade fabric journal.  It’s purple, so of course I mailed it to @purplesque.

Here is the base of the journal with the fabric fused to the pelmet vilene, bound, and pressed.

Here it is folded, prior to adding the paper.
Paper added.
I wasn’t sure how to do the closure.  Will have to get more creative if I make another one.  I sent two options:  elastic gold ribbon
or tied with more purple ribbon.
