I love hand sewn bookbinding. Here is my latest creation, a sketchbook made from heavy brown suede. It measures 9"x11" with 100 pages of handmade pink and white sketch paper.
I used a template from Tandy for the flower designs, but instead of tooling them in (this suede won't do it), I used archival blank ink. Next time I think I'll add my own twisted tree designs.
Of course, this one is for me.
Now, to get back to work on a 500 page journal.
