My Leather Journal Escapade


I'm giddy I tell you!  

I've been wanting to make some leather journals of my own for some time now.  I finally sat down and taught myself the coptic stitch technique, dug out some thrifted leather jackets and went to town!

I didn't trust myself with riveting, so I used a brad for the cord instead.  
Works just as well I believe.

I'm over the moon with how well they turned out!  
Nothing is complete though unless there's lace added to it.

Of course, I won't be keeping these for myself.

They're Christmas gifts for my crafty gals.
