Leather Travel Journal

Hi Everyone!..

I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too πŸ™‚

I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..


I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..


I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too πŸ™‚

I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!

Thanks for popping in

  1. Hi Sarah,
    your Travel Journal cover looks gorgeous, you must be delighted with the result.
    I saw an article in our local paper a while ago that there is a shop close to us that has recently opened, although I haven’t been there yet, that sells leather off cuts etc., so I am hoping to get there to have a look in the next few weeks πŸ™‚ as I had an idea to make some cover when I read the article, shame we don’t have ASDA here in France.
    Look forward to seeing your signatures too when you post them. Do you still have a link for the place that you bought you leather from, it would be interesting to compare prices with the shop here. Thanks for sharing your lovely photo.
    Warmest best wishes from France,
