Over a year after attending a bookmaking workshop, I finally finished making a journal.
I had to cut and fold the pages to size (this was the most time-consuming part), and sew them together with a chain-stitch. The board covers I bought pre-cut, and covered them with blue paper. I didn’t have a board spine, so I used a piece of cardstock between the covers and the pages.
Voila! I haven’t begun using it yet, but I’m nearly done with my current journal, so I will soon.
