Hand Stitched Journal and Paper Bag Books

I must admit that I'm fairly addicted to making handmade books! I just love this hand-stitched journal project that Club Scrap put out in many designs, inclusing this Paisley version!

Here's a sneak peek at another project! This unique Paper Bag Album skips the lunch bags and goes for a more streamlined Kraft Bag. You will learn to (or practice!) use Japanese Stab Binding while folding extra pockets into your pages.

You can choose to seal your pockets' edges with additional stab binding, simple whipstitches, brads, eyelets, staples, etc! And, the class can, optionally, come with additional supplies to fill the pages with coordinating papers and prints! I've actually left the threads long on my Textiles & Notions cover because I want to add some sewing themed charms to the tails! This little book will be wonderful for scrapping about my children's knot tying lessons with Scouts, the girls' Sit-Upons, my son's Cross-Stitching, and the gorgeous Korean Gwi Ju Meoni pouches that my children just made!

Those are gorgeous, Neith! I have to say, I don't think I'm patient enough for these--but I love the effects you get. :-) Stunning!
