Last week I introduced you to my quarter leather journals on cords. And the week before that it was my coptic stitch bindings. This week I'm going to focus on my soft leather journals.
My soft leather journals currently come in two different sizes. The large ones are about 6.8 by 5 inches.
|Grey Leather Journal with Lace|
|Brown Leather Notebook with Purple Cord|
|Grey Rustic Travel Journal|
|Beige Little Leather & Lace Journal|
*Waxed thread for binding
*Text or artist paper (hand torn to size)
*Embellishments (buttons, hooks, lace, etc)
Yes, they use a lot less materials than some of the others. But they do have their own challenges, as leather can be somewhat difficult to work with & pretty unforgiving in certain ways.
Still, these are some of my favorite books to create. They don't take as long as some of the others because there are less steps involved in getting the covers ready, but the materials are more expensive (leather costs more than paper, who would have thought?)

These journals would make great gifts for the holidays! The small ones are pocket-sized & make great little jotter notebooks & the large ones are beautiful for use as travel journals, diaries, notebooks, planners or pretty much anything you can think of! The lace ones are great for girls & women, and the ones without lace have a rustic feel, great for anyone!
I have a bunch of these soft leather journals pre-made & ready to ship in my shop. I'm also willing to make the perfect one for you. If you want a different size, different closure style, different color, different lace etc... let me know & I'll work with you to see what I can do. I love working on custom orders! Just send me a message here & I'll get to work on your custom book right away!
