Yarn-Embellished Journal Cover- Part 3 of 3

Adding a leather strap...


                                              ...to the finished felt journal cover.



                                 A metal punch was used to make the buttonhole...

                          ...(shown here with the green leather from my last project).



                                   My two most recent journal covers...side by side.



                                                      The finished project. 



                          To show how the composition book fits inside its felt cover...

                                     ...here's a photo of my recent 'confetti' one.


                                                A close-up of the brass button.



                                                       The completed project.



                                   Next time: the final journal cover in this series...

                         ...made with pencil roving, silk selvedge and fiber scraps! :)

That brass button works beautifully with the burgundy leather!

Thanks, Rachel! I like it, too...it's kind of celtic-looking.

I am really liking your book/journal covers. They are beautiful to look at, totally functional and practical, and I bet they "feel" amazing too, so very nice when holding the book or journal as well. Congratulations!! :)

Thanks, Sandie! I like making them and I think it's nice that they close securely...that way, you can use them for things you pull out of magazines or paint chips or coupons...! :)
