  • Handmade
  • Materials: fabric, elastic, thread

[jour.nal 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 Bandolier is handmade using fabric 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

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.
