Pre-Felt 'Confetti' Book Cover- Part 2 of 2

Choosing a piece of colored leather for the closure.


                                                The finished book cover (folded)...



                                                          ...and opened up.



                                     Trimming an opening for the book's insertion.



                            Sewing on a leather closure (front side with button hole)...



                                                            ...and back side.



                                                Adding a natural wooden button.



                              The finished book cover (with blank journal inside).

Like very much how your book cover turned out! Very handsome, and a great way to use up felt scraps.
