A Special Journal for a Special Friend!

Hello There

I recently made a very special friend of mine a little RAK and sent it to her in the post as a surprise.  I know she liked it and hope you do too!

I took a piece of leather, backed it with some paper.  Made some signatures and stitched them in by hand with a slight twist.
Yep!  I stitched beads on the spine.
















Finished it all off with a leather cord to close the Journal up.

I know my friend liked it and I hope you do.

Have a great weekend.

I'm not surprised she liked it - it's absolutely gorgeous. Have you tried selling them? I would imagine they'd go like hot cakes lol!
I love that rich colour and your skills in bookbinding/signatures is fantastic! Have a lovely weekend x

Beautiful colour and handiwork.

Wow! I love this! For some reason it reminds me of those gorgeous sashes that fasten kimonos! What a lovely gift! Julie Ann xx
