Since it’s such a beautiful day, I want to take the bike and get some shots. I unsuccessfully searched the house this morning for a small notebook, so I deicded to make my own. I’m not the best at hand-drawn art, so I searched Google Images to find this image of a Nikon Camera. I created a Pages document because it’s easier than Word for laying out multiple copies of something on the same sheet. My Template is generic enough for any type of journal with a few quick updates.
Construction Time: 15-30 minutes
- Printer & pattern
- Thick paper for cover
- Thinner paper for journal pages
- Papper cutter or scissors
- Thick/upholstery thread
- Sharp needle & thimble
- Print cover. Cut cover and filler sheets in half with scissors or paper cutter.
- Sew pages into book. I just jumped in and didn’t use an official stitch, but here are some great suggestions. I used something similar to page 3, “Half-back.”
