Pretty journal cover
I’ve just completed another sewing project and I’m particularly proud of this one*v* I think it turned out really nice! I’ve made a journal cover to fit an A5 art diary – most art diaries are just plain ordinary.
I got the design from one of the Japanese craft books that I bought last weekend. Instructions in the book are for paperback novels, so I had to alter the measurements to fit my A5 art diary.
Left: pretty*v*; Right: ugly
You might have noticed that the bookmark string hangs from the bottom. As much as I don’t want to tell you… I made a mistake= = I couldn’t believe it!!! But then after I put the art diary inside the journal cover, I actually think that it is a good idea to have it hang from the bottom. You’ll see why:D
I think the bookmark looks nice hanging from the top – like an extra feature, and you wouldn’t have an annoying long tail down the bottom, which sometimes frustrates me:p
I also stitched my newly hand carved stamp tag on the inside of the front cover^0^ I think I’m addicted, I attach stamp tags on everything!
And this is the back.
Yay! My art diary actually looks nice now^0^
