Making A Journal: Part 2

Hello out there in the blogosphere! Today I am finally sharing part two of my Making A Journal series, demonstrating how to sew signatures into a hard-covered journal in a way that doesn’t show the binding itself. It’s hiding!

I was unable to record this earlier because my sewing machine was in this shop. But she’s back and ready to roll and has been smoking with much-needed sewing these past few days!

To make these invisible signatures, you basically sew the signatures to a piece of paper (in this case I used faux leather paper) and you glue it (I used Modge Podge) on the inside of the journal itself. I recorded a step-by-step YouTube video if interested:

The result is a gorgeous journal with no signs of binding!

There’s a journal out there with your name on it! Go and get your craft on! The final installment of this series, part 3, will feature a session on base decorations — pockets and embellishments.

Till next time,
