Handbound journal measuring approx 8” x 11 “, with 80 sheets college ruled paper. The end papers are pictures of elephants. Makes a great gift!


I used leftover college rule notebook paper. The bookcover is fabric. The hardcover cardboard is reused household cardboard. The endpapers are pictures from calendars or magazines. Instead of folding the paper into signatures, I’ve glued the pages along the spine so the full size of the page may be used. After it is all assembled, I have used varnish on the cover to protect the fabric from wear.

Ever since I read “Inkheart”, where Mo the bookbinder describes rebinding books as “dressing them up in new clothes”,I’ve been fascinated with the idea of binding my own books.

Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous, sunny bag! So beautifully made! Even though there's snow on the ground, I'm all set for farmers market season & it's so generously sized I'll be able to bring home quite a haul! Really, really impressed with the craftsmanship, and it arrived quick as a whistle, too. Thank you so much!
