making stuff: fabric journals

I’ve been a busy little bee lately buzzing around my “craft room”.  I’ve got several projects going at once, but I have managed to whip out a few little gifts.  I have a thing for journals (clearly!) and I like them pocket/purse size to be able to jot down thoughts, words, grocery items.  I also have a thing for fabric and I don’t seem to ever toss my scraps because, you know, I just *might* use them.  Looking at my stack of fabric scraps and coveting new pocket size journals at my local bookstore, the idea hit me.   These two things go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly.  I also decided to make a tutorial because everyone should have their very own little pocket book.  There are so many possibilities with these little guys. Paper, fabric, embellishments, embroidery… endless possibilities.
