Mixtogether 2

I'm off to Amitie Textiles thisafternoon to meet up with some other lovely bloggers for Mixtogether 2....

The theme for today is 'Creative Journals'.

I made a covered journal. The journal is just folded A4 paper with a cardboard cover that I stitched together with embroidery floss. There's also a mini sketch pad in the pocket.

I used my trusty bias tape maker to to trim the pockets and the cover and to make the latch to close it. I used my trusty snapsetter for the snap closure.


I tucked some decorative papers and cardboard into the cover....

I've also included a matching covered A4 sketch pad.....

.....and my version of a pencil case (my version means that I still don't know how to sew zippers in properly and ran out of time to teach myself)! Hope my giftee likes it!

That looks fantastic - I am sure the recipient will be very impressed and won't even notice there is no zip!

Have a great time today.

Hope you had fun at the Mixtogether.
