Janice Berkebile demonstrated making a Linen Travel Journal today at Daniel Smith mothership. It’s one method of making a case bound book. Along with the long-stitch leather journal she taught earlier in the year, I think this one could be another favorite!
I see several possibilities for adaptations to make it exactly the kind of sketchbook I like. For example, I’d put elastic on the unbound end rather than using a ribbon to keep it closed. I have linen in other colors, too.
The workshop is in two weeks and I’m really looking forward to it! It’s all day, December 4th.
Here is where I would put in an elastic band on the right rather than using the ribbon. It would be more utilitarian but not as pretty.
