[jour.nal ban.do.lier n.] a strap fitted with small loops for carrying pens, pencils, and other handy tools wrapped around a journal, planner, or other book.

Some time ago I made a journal bandolier for myself. After the 8th person asked me where they could get one it occurred to me that I wasn't the only person sick of losing pens and breaking pencil points, or having inspiration hit only to find I had nothing to draw or write with!

This style of Bandolier is handmade using reclaimed rubber and elastic.

The Vital Stats:
- The strap of this bandolier is 2 inches wide
- It measures 5.75 inches long when laid flat
- Each slot is approximately 1 inch wide
- There are a total of 7 loops

What will it fit?
- The journal it is tailored to is the 5.25" wide Moleskine (11.5" around)
- It will stretch to fit larger books with circumferences up to around 13.5"
- The slots will fit tools up to the size of a standard sharpie.

Because this bandolier is made from reclaimed rubber it will show lots of character and individuality due to the fact that each one starts out life as a bicycle inner tube.

This is a handmade item and will have variations from the photograph as the one in the photograph has been sold.

I find many of my materials at a center for creative reuse to improve the carbon footprint things I make.

Custom widths and loop sizes are available upon request. See the additional images for alternate fabric selections.

I love the bandolier. It arrived less than a week after I ordered it and it fits my Moleskine journal nicely! The slots hold all of my writing tools, from slim rollerballs to my biggest fountain pens. It's sturdy, and well-made. I love it. Thank you! Also, the little booklet that came with the bandolier is very nice.

This is perfect for my travel sketchpad! I'm constantly losing my pencils and pens, so this is very useful. I'll definitely be returning for more!
