How to Sew Journals and Books

How to sew journals and books

I’ve always loved fabric, but back when paper companies started to produce so many beautiful papers, I just couldn’t get enough of them. I was obsessed with scrapbooking, hand made cards, and envelopes. I loved creating unique invitations, boxes, and tags for special events. Today I went back in time and combined my love of sewing with paper to create these fun books with a sewing machine.

You can put these colorful books all around your house to record your thoughts, generate unique artwork, make those lists or even document your travels. You never know when I bright idea is going to hit you and you are going to need to make a note of it.

So, if paper is more your thing than fabric, you can still use that sewing machine to create some colorful books with some beautiful paper.

Happy Sewing!

    What an awesome tutorial! Thank you so much for this! I’m always writing in notebooks, so I will definitely be using this tutorial for myself – plus they’d make really cute and lovely gifts! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much Emily! My granddaughter has a pen, a pencil, a crayon, or a marker in her hand whenever she isn’t shooting her bow. She loves to draw and write so I gave her all of these and she made some of her own which will be my next post… Happy Book making. πŸ™‚
