What you'll need

I wanted to let you know that I received my Leather Journal kit yesterday and put it together that afternoon. It was so easy. The directions were great. I gave it to my mother who is leaving for France on Monday. She was thrilled. This is only the third book that I have made but it was a lot of fun. I look forward to making many more.

Thank you for a great web site with lots of neat products and fun ideas.

Wonderful 'distressed' leather covers this journal. Through-the-spine sewing allows it to open wide for all your field notes and the double fold and button closure keep your pages clean and neat. This journal is informal and looks great adorned with charms, fibers, eyelets, snaps and beads. We have several samples in our Idea Center.

Finished journal size: 7 1/2 X 5 1/4
